The NADRA spokesman said overseas Pakistanis will be able to vote from home in the next general elections. However, the final decision on taking this initiative forward lies with ECP.
- The online voting system will be prepared to facilitate 8 million overseas Pakistanis.
- First the overseas Pakistanis would be registered with NADRA and then their biometric impression would be recorded.
- The expatriates would then be issued a secret code, after which, they would be able to cast their votes through their registered mobile number using the given code.
