CHAGAI: Provincial Election Commissioner of Balochistan Fayyaz Hussain Murad has said that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) will carry out delimitation of constituencies on the basis of ground realities and no political interference will be allowed in this regard.

He was addressing a press briefing at Circuit House in Dalbandin. Divisional Elec­tion Commissioner of Rakh­shan Tahir Hassan and District Election Commi­ssioner of Chagai Abbas Ali Qadri also responded to queries on the occasion.

Mr Murad said that district election commissioners would head the delimitation committees which would have two members from local administration.

“This time the delimitation process will be carried out by the ECP itself. You will see that no political interference will be entertained,” Mr Murad said while responding to a question.

He said that the verification and registration of voters under annual revision of electoral rolls continued for about three weeks in Balochistan like other parts of the country and would end on December 6. Then the delimitation process would commence.

He urged the masses to cooperate with the teams carrying out verification and registration of voters on door-to-door basis. Replying to a query, Mr Murad said government servants would be able to cast their votes in their place of their posting after registration.

He made it clear that every citizen could cast his/her vote either on permanent or temporary address according to their computerised national identity cards.
