ECP to decide today on including overseas Pakistanis’ votes in final count
The decision to include votes cast by overseas Pakistanis in the final count will be taken today.

According to sources in the Election Commission of Pakistan, the officials of National Database and

Registration Authority will meet the chief election commissioner to decide on the matter.

The ECP officials said there was a positive response on i-voting from overseas Pakistanis and that NADRA officials would give them a briefing.
Data provided by ECP shows that 7,364 overseas Pakistanis were registered for i-voting. Out of the count, 6,233 cast their ballots, making the turnout to over 83.5%.

From the registered overseas Pakistanis, 5117 voted on the National Assembly seats, while 1,116 cast their ballots for provincial assembly constituencies, the officials further said.

The margin of victory is very low in one National Assembly, three Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly and two Punjab Assembly seats and the results can change after the votes of overseas Pakistanis are included.
