PPP asks EC to put updated voters list on website

November 14th, 2007 - 2:10 am ICT by admin  
The demand was made by the PPP’s Election Monitoring Cell after a meeting here. The meeting was presided over by the coordinator of the cell, Senator Sardar Latif Khosa.

PPP spokesman Farhatullah Babar said the meeting decided that Senator Khosa would raise the issue before the Supreme Court to direct the ECP to place the list on its website before their printing.

Earlier, ECP secretary Kanwar Dilshad in an interview to a private television channel had said the lists would be made public in a week and new voters had been enrolled after ensuring that all the duplicate votes had been deleted.

The ECP is updating the list on the directive of the Supreme Court on the petition of PPP chairperson Benazir Bhutto.

The PPP had termed the draft electoral rolls for 2007 parliamentary elections faulty after finding that the names of 20 million eligible voters were missing as compared to the electoral rolls used in the October 2002 polls.

The ECP now has claimed that as directed by the Supreme Court, it has been working on updating the electoral rolls.

The PPP, however, has demanded that the list be placed on the website so that the political parties could verify the claims made by the ECP, the Dawn reported. (ANI)
