Bogus voter lists: CJ satisfied over ECP response


Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammed Chaudhry expressed satisfaction over a report submitted by Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) in bogus voter lists case and directed that voters should be approached for their consent over the location of their choice where their votes could be sent.
He was heading a three-member hearing a petition moved by Jamat-e-Islami Ameer Syed Munawwar Hasan, clubbed with petitions of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf Chief Imran Khan and Pakistan Peoples’ Party late chairperson Benazir Bhutto regarding preparation of fresh electoral lists.
During the hearing, Benazir Bhutto’s counsel Khurram Khosa said Benazir’s petition also objected to the transfer of the votes from one address to the other.
Director General (Legal) ECP Sher Afghan, submitted to the court a rejoinder which states the votes of 5700,000 voters have been delivered to constituencies with their permanent addresses.
The report says the votes of those who the ECP officials could not see during house-to-house visits, were sent to their permanent addresses; however, new 2584,000 voters have been registered.
The Chief Justice maintained the ECP report is apparently satisfactory; however, the voters should be solicited for their consent for the transfer of their votes.
Saying the commission submitted a comprehensive rejoinder, the CJ Chaudhry urged the voters to contact the Election Commission to get their votes transferred to their current addresses.
The political parties can also approach the ECP to assist their voters, he added.
