NADRA completes computerised voter list of 80mn voters

Islamabad: National and Database Registration Authority (NADRA) has prepared computerised lists of 80 million voters which would be verified from August 22.

The deputy chairman said that NADRA had completed the printing work of these lists and sent them to the election offices of related districts.

This step was taken on directions from the parliament which made the computerised ID card compulsory for voting. The deputy chairman also said that they had issued 86 million computerised identity cards to 93% population of the country while registration of the remaining citizens would be completed within the next four months.

On the other hand, a spokesman for the ECP (Election Commission of Pakistan) said that each census block consisted of 300 houses, while 211,000 verifying officials have also been appointed to conduct verification of computerised voters lists. NADRA has already handed over computerised draft electoral lists, he said.

The verification officials of 130 districts have been provided NADRA’s draft electoral rolls, along with the lists of 2007 to prepare authentic ones.

Responding to a question, he said that in some cases, NADRA has duplicate entries which will be removed after verification.

A mobile van will also accompany each verification team to include or remove a voter’s name immediately.

All regional offices of NADRA would be handed over to ECP as the verification campaign starts. The voters lists have also been sent to flood-hit areas. Meanwhile, the ECP is likely to initiate a media campaign from Monday urging people to register votes.
