80m voters registered on new lists

The Election Commission of Pakistan has completed one phase of updating electoral rolls by registering 80,547,743 voters, media reported March 9.

The preparation of accurate computerised electoral rolls was a demand by all political parties, civil society members and media who want free and fair elections, said Secretary Election Commission of Pakistan Ishtiak Ahmed Khan.

Since many Pakistanis complained about multiple phony entries on the 2007 electoral rolls, it was necessary to adopt a foolproof registration system, he said.
