LONDON: Senior PML-N leader Ishaq Dar told reporters that prominent PTI lawmakers had opposed electronic voting machines in 2016-2017.
The former finance minister said a special committee of all the parliamentary parties in the National Assembly rejected the proposal for employing the EVMs for general elections after holding 30 meetings on the issue.
“PTI leaders Dr. Arif Alvi, Shafqat Mahmood, and Dr. Shireen Mazari were also members of the committee who shared the views of the fellow members,” he told reporters in London.
Dar said he was head of the committee and everyone unanimously rejected the proposal “on the grounds that such a system was not compatible with Pakistan’s condition.”
He added the EVM is not feasible for holding elections in Pakistan, adding that several countries stopped using them.
