Overseas voting amendment is good news


The amendments made to Pakistan’s Election Act 2017 represent a watershed moment in its electoral history. Finally, disenfranc­hised Pakistanis living overseas have been given a constituti­onal right to vote. Furthermor­e, any doors that were open to manipulati­on and gerrymande­ring of future elections will be slammed shut by the usage of electronic voting machines. Well done, Imran Khan.
