ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Science and Technology Senator Syed Shibli Faraz says the use of Electronic Voting Machines will help make the electoral system rigging-free, fair, and transparent for an acceptable and reliable result.
He was briefing the media on Electronic Voting Machine at the Parliament House Islamabad on Wednesday. National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser and other parliamentarians were also present on the occasion.
Shibli Faraz said the EVM would not be hacked as it is not linked with the internet.
Presenting a mock use of the machine, he said the EVM will complete the voting process at a high speed in a transparent way. He said a voter could not use the machine more than one time in an election process.
Shibli Faraz said the result of EVM cannot be manipulated as there would be two records created through this process; a paper record and an electronic record. He said there would be no possibility of error in the counting votes.
He said identification would be on the basis of the CNIC and it would be verified by data provided by the NADRA.
Shibli Faraz said the EVM has been designed according to the requirements of the Election Commission of Pakistan.
