NADRA chairman claims making history
KARACHI: “Made by vote, Pakistan needs to be saved by vote and the future of Pakistan depends on the eligible voters by checking, verifying and rectifying their voters location,” said Chairman National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) Tariq Malik on Tuesday while felicitating the authorities of Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on the eve of the National Voters Day.
Terming it a great national cause, he said it would determine promising future of the country because only vote makes the country thrive and prosper by leaps and bounds. “If the people of Pakistan want positive changes in society, they have to come out and get them registered on electoral list, he said. He said, “The ECP decision of announcing same reconciling electoral rolls used in 2008 general elections with National Database and Registration Authority Citizen Database and verifying voters identity was a major step towards preparation of transparent electoral rolls.
This project resulted in removing inaccuracies, duplication and unverified votes, which undoubtedly helped restore public confidence. It is first time in the 65-year history of the country that nobody is registered at more than one place, which has not yet been achieved in voters list of USA, UK, France and India.”
“It would not be out of the context to mention here that National Database and Registration Authority have issued 92 million CNICs which constitutes 96 percent of adult population and has an aggressive plan to register the rest before next elections. However, women registration has seen a significant spike of 84 percent, recently.
