President Dr Arif Alvi on Friday declared the I-voting inevitable to make around nine million overseas Pakistanis part of the electoral process.

Presiding over a meeting on Emerging Technologies in I-voting in Islamabad, he also called for using the latest technology to make the I-voting system foolproof.

President Alvi directed the National Database and Registration Authority to extend support to address the technical challenges in establishing the I-voting system.

The meeting agreed to constitute a sub-committee to accelerate the preparation of I-voting system, monitoring as well as removing the impediments.
