Federal Law Minister Farogh Naseem said on Friday that latest technology would be used to conduct the next census, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The minister said that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) would not put any concern now to hold elections as per the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs).
He was addressing a press conference in Islamabad along with Parliamentary Secretary Law and Justice Maleeka Bokhari.
Farogh said that the government had removed the chemical castration condition from the Anti-Rape (Investigation and Trail) Bill 2021 as per the advice of the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII).
He defended the legislation done in the joint session of the parliament.
Farogh said the opposition can happily challenge the electoral reforms in the court that have not been passed by the parliament.
On Kulbhushan Jadav, the law minister said that Pakistan had won the case in the ICJ.
He said that the bill passed with respect to the Indian spy at the joint sitting of the parliament not only for Kulbhushan Jadav but for all those who would fall in its purview.
He said Pakistan is a responsible country and passed legislation to give the Right of Appeal (RoA) as per the directions of the ICJ.
