Electronic voting, right to vote for overseas Pakistanis through ordinance challenged
ISLAMABAD (City News) Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader and MNA Mohsin Shahnawaz Ranjha has challenged the ordinance on electronic voting and granting voting rights to the overseas Pakistanis in the Islamabad High Court (IHC).
The petition adopted the stance that the government issued a one-page ordinance on May 9 as per media reports. The public and public representatives were not taken into confidence regarding such important legislation.
“The government has made it a habit to issue ordinances, hence depriving the public representatives of the right to legislate,” the petitioner maintained.
The PML-N leader petitioned the court to declare electronic voting and the right to vote for overseas Pakistanis through an ordinance unconstitutional and illegal.
