Punjab govt includes clause of EVM in proposed LG bill

The Punjab government has adopted the Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) related clause in its proposed bill related to the local governments (LG).

 According to the 24News HD TV channel, Punjab Local Governments Department added the clause of holding the next local government elections by using EVMs in the new proposed bill.

The next local government elections across the province of Punjab would be held through the EVM if the provincial assembly passed the bill and adopted the clause.

The channel report said that the Pakistan Muslim League Quaid (PML-Q), an allied party of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has already shown its reservations over the proposed draft of the Local Government Bill.
