SC seeks statement on verification of voters’ list in Karachi

ISLAMABAD: A three member Supreme Court bench on Thursday directed the Election Commission Sindh to submit a comprehensive statement over door-to-door verification of voter lists in Karachi.

The bench comprising Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, Justice Gulzar Ahmed and Justice Sh. Azmat Saeed was hearing a petition filed by Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf chief Imran Khan against fake voter lists in Karachi and electoral reforms.

At the outset of hearing, the chief justice noted that complaints were being received over non-implementation of the Supreme Court’s verdict in the matter.

The court sought the details of the verification of voter lists indicating that when did the process began and how many military personnel were taking part in the process. Hamid Khan, counsel for Imran Khan, told the court that door-to-door verification of voter lists had not yet been started.
