EVMs will process election results in 15 minutes


Dispelling the impression that the use of Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) may lead to wastage of vote, Federal Minister for Science and Technology Shibli Faraz Monday said that the newly developed EVMs, which took 90 days for development, will process the election results in just 15 seconds.

“We want the opposition parties to bring their experts and test the EVMs for their satisfaction,” said Faraz, adding that rejecting the machines without inspecting them is not right”. The minister said while addressing a ceremony at the University of Engineering Peshawar.

“Around 1.8 million votes are wasted by counting them through the conventional method but not a single vote would be wasted with the use of the EVMs,” said Faraz adding that the government will use technology instead of manpower for counting votes in the next elections.—
