Pakistan: Just after the row in India, Pakistan authorities are also growing suspicious of the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs).




According to the information given by the sources, “The reports coming from India have furthered their concerns.”




Political parties ranged against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in India have alleged EVM tampering in the just concluded assembly elections.




As per the reports, “The scandal of EVMs hounding the recent Indian elections is a timely forewarning for the ECP to desist from a complete switchover from existing paper ballot system to the desired EVM.”




Referring to the Pakistani poll panel, it said: “In their internal meetings, there is a consensus in the ECP that Pakistan should initially restrict itself to pilot projects under the EVM system.”
