ISLAMABAD: More than 2,000 journalists in Islamabad and Rawalpindi were not be able to cast their votes in their ancestral towns and villages because of Election Day duties.
The journalists had earlier demanded of the Election Commission of Pakistan to devise a swift strategy to facilitate them to cast their vote in their respective constituencies on May 11.
A large number of journalists were assigned election duties by their respective organizations in Islamabad and neighboring Rawalpindi for providing prompt information to the general public.
The elections were one of the biggest exercises in peace time and every media organization gave proper coverage. However, unfortunately the ECP did not devise any system in this era of technology to facilitate voters.
ECP spokesman Khursheed Alam said under the law there was no system for journalists or private employees to cast their votes. “There is a need to amend laws enabling such people to vote, but it was not possible at this stage.” - APP
