ISLAMABAD—The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) mistakenly declared journalist Haseeb Manzoor Bhatti dead in the voters' database.
In a tweet, Bhatti, associated with DawnNews, sarcastically stated: "Mash'Allah, the Election Commission of Pakistan has confirmed my demise, but I have no information about it." He also shared the details of the statistical block code sent to him by the commission.
The ECP message says his vote has been rejected after confirmation of his death during the house-to-house verification process in connection with the periodic revision of electoral rolls.
