Second Session

Ms. Zaib Liaqat (YP26-PUNJAB09) would like to move following resolution: “This House is of the opinion that the overseas Pakistanis should be given the right to vote. The change is expected to affect more than three million Pakistanis living abroad. The possibility of introducing a “postal balloting” method seem to be the most easily implemented option, given the time available. Alternatively polling stations can be established at the embassies and consulates in foreign jurisdictions and the embassy officials can be appointed as the returning officers”.

Ms. Zaib Liaqat (YP26-PUNJAB09) would like to move following resolution: “This House is of the opinion that the blank box should not be included in the ballot paper. It is illogical because it will pave the way for undemocratic forces”.
