ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Railways Minister Azam Swati said that they will introduce the electronic voting machine (EVM) to give people a fair system no matter how much hurdles are created in this regard.

Addressing a press conference on Monday, he said that the appointment of the chief election commissioner (CEC) is a secret. "We knew that the CEC is the wrist watch of older Mian Sahib, while a cane of younger Mian Sahib," he maintained.

He questioned the chief election commissioner, saying how much notices he had served to Maryam Nawaz and Maulana Fazalur Rehman. "On whose advice, the CEC is hell bent on destroying the great institution of the Election Commission of Pakistan?" he queried.

Adviser to the Prime Minister on Parliamentary Affairs Babar Awan said that efforts are being made to make the electoral reforms controversial. "The caretaker government, not Imran Khan, will hold the next election. It is wrong legally and morally to accuse the present government of stealing the elections," he added.

He said that the opposition will have to tell the people the reason behind being fearful of the electronic voting machine. "Why do they (the opposition) not give the overseas Pakistanis the right to vote?" he questioned.
