ECP Grave for Extra Ballot printing papers digs deeper from Zero to 9.3 Million

Quite shockingly the more you dig into the ECP hoping to expose the facts of this esteemed organisation entrusted to conduct Free and Fair elections – is fudging numbers – how can on 11th August 2014 ECP is on record to say

Tribune – 11th August: They refuted allegations that ballot papers were printed through private contractors or that even excess ballot papers were printed. They said that there was no question of extra ballot papers being printed, which were printed by a governmental organisation. They added that the provincial election commission did even add one extra ballot paper.

On 28th November responding to PTI’s allegation that 5.5 Million ECP is on record to raise the extra-ballots printing bar from Zero to 0.8 million

The News – 28th November: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has said that in the general elections 2013, only 800,000 additional ballot papers were printed and that too due to technical reasons.

And finally 3 days later on December 1st the extra ballots increase from 0.8 million to 9.3 million

Geo News – 1st December: According to the details, 8.34 million additional ballot papers were printed in the general elections of 1997, 9.4 million in 1999, 9 million in 2008 and 9.3 million in the elections of 2013.

So in a span of 113 days each on the insistence and reactionary response to Imran Khan’s allegations of rigging the ECP has stumbled into correcting its own lies one after the other, how can facts of extra ballots differ by a mammoth 9.3 Million – a free and fair elections need to document in black and white and present fact in a total unbiased and fair manner – ECP should not be the political voice of the elected status quo, but the genuine voice in protecting the fundamental right of the people of Pakistan ie their right to vote

Citizens Demonstration to demand action by ECP – Monday 12pm Karachi

Fakhruddin Ebrahim Election Commission of PakistanPlease join the Citizens Demonstration

Date: Monday the 25 Feb. 2013
Time: 12:00 Noon sharp
Location: Election Commission’s Office, opposite Passport office, Saddar, Karachi


Pakistan cannot change for better if the same bunch of corrupt and lawless parliamentarians are allowed to plunder for another 5 years. The ECP is already bending under the pressure of parliamentarians who have ganged up to ensure that the ECP is prevented from doing its job.

We as citizens demand that the ECP should perform its constitutional role and filter out all those who presented fake degrees, hold dual nationality, evaded tax , defaulted on loans or indulged in criminal activities. The process of disqualification must begin NOW.

Please join us to hold a citizens peaceful demonstration in front of the CEC’s Karachi office (Opposite to Passport office in Saddar) to press these demands.

PETITION: Citizens Demand for a Fair Elections in Pakistan – Disqualify Defaulters

“Starting a Citizens Petition for a Fair Elections in Pakistan to the ECP to: Disqualify Fake Degree Holders, Dual Nationals, Loan Defaulters, Tax Evaders and Defaulters of Utility Bills from contesting the elections

Justice (Retd.) Fakhruddin G. Ibrahim
Election Commission of Pakistan

We, the ‘Citizens for Fair Elections’ demand that the Election Commission puts an end to the eternal recycling of political sewerage by taking the following bold steps:

  1. DISQUALIFY ALL FAKE DEGREE HOLDERS: ECP should order HEC to provide exact details of all parliamentarians who either have fake degrees or who concealed their degrees to prevent verification by HEC. Both categories of Parliamentarians be disqualified for their fraud and dishonest actions.
  2. DISQUALIFY ALL DUAL NATIONALS: ECP should ask for affidavit and verify from other sources the dual nationality status of each legislator. Those with dual nationality or those who do not provide an affidavit confirming that they are not dual nationals be disqualified. This should include people like Rehman Malik who acquired and then presumably gave up their dual nationality. Article 63C of the constitution reads, “A person shall be disqualified from being elected as a member of Parliament if he acquires the citizenship of a foreign state”. The act of once acquiring is sufficient to disqualify a legislator.
  3. DISQUALIFY LOAN DEFAULTERS. (Details may be obtained from SBP and all banks).
  4. DISQUALIFY TAX EVADERS: (Details may be obtained from FBR for the last five years).
  5. DISQUALIFY DEFAULTERS OF UTILITY BILLS. (Details may be obtained from all utility service providers for the last five years).

ECP should get the exact details for the past five years from SBP, FDR and Utilities service providers and disqualify all those legislators who violated article 62 and 63 of the Constitution.

NADRA Lists should be used to form Electoral Rolls

Still amazed at why cant a simple solution be thought out for a free and transparent election – Simply using NADRA’s database will save tremendous resources – ECP should extract Voters LAST REGISTERED ADDRESS and it can become his voting address. If there is a mismatch on the last known address of the person it should be the responsibility of the voter to have it corrected at the NADRA office before the electoral lists are locked (90 days prior to election) – this effort also enables the Govt of Pakistan have the updated present address every five years

So if an 18+ Pakistani has a CNIC card, he should be able to walk into the nearest polling station to his registered present address and cast his vote. Door-to-door verification & compiling of the data will always be prone to errors & political maneuvering – hence the more hurdles that are created opens the door to Election Fraud
