Overseas Pakistanis will not vote in next elections


The Election Commission of Pakistan on Wednesday decided that more then 4 million overseas Pakistani’s will not exercise their right to vote from their country of residence.
The reasons behind the decision were described as legal hurdles and the unavailability of an adequate voting mechanism for the 4 million overseas voters spread across 106 countries, to be able to cast their vote. If they wish to exercise their right to vote, they will have to come to Pakistan to cast their ballot.
It was also decided during the meeting that voting will take place again, at polling stations reserved for women, where voter turn out is less than 10 percent.
