ECP forms 5 bodies to receive objections, provide assistance

By Our correspondent

ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has formed five committees to receive objections and provide assistance with regards to preliminary delimitation of constituencies of the National Assembly (NA) and the four provinces, the federal capital and Fata.

In this connection, a facilitation centre has been established here at the Election Commission Secretariat so that the objections could be properly furnished and presented before the ECP. Objections can be filed during office hours by the applicant or through his agent. The application should carry along eight copies of objection (s). The last date of filing objection is April 03.

An event was organised here at the Election Commission Secretariat in connection with the International Women’s Day: the dialogue was on registration of women as voters; political parties representatives were invited to express their views and float proposals on how maximum number of females could be registered as voters, after having been issued CNICs.

In his remarks, Chief Election Commissioner Justice Sardar Muhammad Raza emphasised that if enabling environment was provided to women, they could demonstrate their best skills and abilities. A lively discussion was held on the on-going campaign of the ECP in 103 districts for registration of women as voters. The ECP noted the proposals given by the participants, which would be deliberated upon while chalking the line of action in future.

Meanwhile, the ECP has reserved the decision in MQM’s convenership case on a petition filed by the MQM Pakistan head Farooq Sattar against the leader of other factions Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui while MNA Kanwar Naveed Jamil pleaded, seeking Sattar’s intra-party election to be declared void.
