IHC rejects plea against EVMs based on worries

Observer Report

While disposing of a plea seeking the court’s directives to the federal government to hold a referendum over the use of electronic voting machines in the next general elections, the Islamabad High Court ruled on Wednesday it cannot address the grievances based on mere apprehensions.

Advocate Supreme Court Tariq Asad has invoked the IHC jurisdiction in the matter.
Chief Justice IHC Athar Minallah authored a three-page verdict in response to the petition, saying the petitioner has sought multiple prayers.

He has sought a direction to the ECP to apprise the high court regarding the objections raised against holding the next general elections through the EVMs.
