Islamabad National Assembly passes bill to abolish EVMs in forthcoming choicesŪ”

Prime Minister Nazir Tarar has said that the former government didn’t take all parties into confidence regarding EVM.
Speaking in the National Assembly, Federal Law Minister Nazir Tarar said that political parties had reservations about electronic voting machines and the former government didn’t take all parties into confidence regarding EVMs.

He said that it wasn’t possible to hold choices on the same day across the country through EVM. Numerous emendations were made in this law in the PTI government and numerous expostulations were raised in the Election Commission on EVM while veritably little difference was made.

Azam Nazir Tarar said that when this bill came in the Senate, it was transferred to the commission and we held numerous meetings on it but the bill was passed by bulldozing the rules. There’s room for enhancement in the law.

He said that there were some failings in the 2018 choices which demanded to be remedied and under the guise of election reforms, stakeholders weren’t taken into confidence and called for EVM.

The Law Minister said that no bone can deprive the Overseas Pakistanis of their right to bounce and there’s a scuttlebutt about us that perhaps we aren’t in favor of Overseas vote.

We aren’t against EVMs and technology and we’re just hysterical that anything can be when RTS can sit still he said.
