Pakistan Bar Council has supported the government’s initiative to introduce electronic voting machines (EVMs) for holding free and transparent polls in the country.

In a letter written to Prime Minister Imran Khan, PBC member Shafqat Mahmood Chohan said that the electronic voting machines would pave way for strengthening democracy in the country.

“It will help in eradicating rigging practices during the polls,” the PBC member said adding that it would help in avoiding practices that previously led to stealing the public mandate.

The letter further shared that Lahore High Court Bar was the first one to use the electronic voting machine and before its introduction, they had to face stiff resistance from the lawyer’s community.
