Sheikh Rashid

Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed on Wednesday said that the next general elections will be held on the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs.) Addressing an event in Rawalpindi, the minister said the use of EVMs in general elections will ensure free, fair and transparent voting with credible and accurate results.

He said the government has completed legislation to provide the right to vote to overseas Pakistanis.

The minister said all Pakistani citizens living abroad will have the right to vote in the next general elections and hence will play a vital role in decision making.

Sheikh Rasheed said that there was always Pandora’s box after every election and this should stop.

He said the federal cabinet has approved the provision of online visas to people associated with Tableeghi groups.—INP
