Overseas Pakistan Stage Protest Outside ECP For Right To Vote

ISLAMABAD: A protest demonstration was held by overseas Pakistanis outside the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to give them their right to vote.

The protest organized by Pakistan Overseas Forum (POF) was participated by dozens of overseas Pakistan in front of ECP.

Talking to newsmen, the protestors said that they were protesting for their basic right to the vote as the ECP has failed to provide them the right to vote.

In 2016, the Supreme Court ordered to give the right to vote to overseas Pakistanis but the electoral body has utterly failed in doing so, they added.

The protestors demanded that overseas Pakistanis must be given their right to vote as it was their legal and constitutional right. Meanwhile, a large number

of policemen were deployed outside the ECP during the protests, while the roads heading towards the ECP were blocked with barbwires.
