Former interior minister and Awami Muslim League Chief Sheikh Rasheed has announced to move SC for the provision of the rights to vote to overseas Pakistanis.
“Country is running with the foreign remittances sent by 10 million overseas Pakistanis, will move to court if they are deprived of voting right,” Sheikh Rasheed said in his statement.
Rasheed said he will ensure the provision of voting rights to overseas Pakistanis. The Pakistani diaspora will protest if they are not allowed to exercise their right to vote.
Criticising the decision of doing trade with India, Sheikh Rasheed said the move is like accepting the Modi’s steps of August 5 in the occupied Kashmir. Kashmiris will never accept this move of the Pakistan Muslim League- Nawaz-led federal government.
Earlier, Minister for Law and Justice Senator Azam Nazir Tarar Wednesday said that present government’s top agenda to introduce electoral reforms in the country would ensure transparency in the democratic process and level playing field for all political parties.—INP
