WE the expatriates, living away from our motherland, have the right to choose the leader, the team to rule and, therefore, the future and destiny of our country.

The Election Commission of Pakistan should work out a solution to enable the Pakistanis living abroad to vote in the forthcoming elections.

The voting through electronic media is a doable solution and is being used all over the world.

If the e-voting system entails some extra expenses, then, for sure, I am ready to pay for it as I would not like to lose my right to vote.

Polling centre RECENTLY I checked my voting centre by sending CNIC number via sms at 8300 and came to know about my voting centre as the Taga village in Dadu district.

Although I was born in Piaro, which is a few kilometres from Taga, we shifted to Hyderabad before I reached the age of 18. I never voted in my village.

My block code is: 352020609 and serial number is 274.

In 2008, I had submitted a form after which my election centre was UC-I, Latifabad, and I cast my vote their for the first time.

I request the authorities concerned to change or cancel my voting station because I cannot go to Taga to cast my vote and hence do not want any political party to misuse my vote.

Majority of expatriate voters are for Imran Khan’s PTI. The state machinery pro Zardari – Sharif will do their level best to keep them away, therfore the ECP has become deaf and dumb to the voices expatriate Pakistanis. Temporarily suspend remittance to Pakistan and your voice will be heard loud and clear.
