ECP Finalizes Preparations For The Election 2024
The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has declared that it has concluded all preparations for the upcoming polling for the National and Provincial assemblies scheduled for next month. ECP Spokesperson Syed Nadeem Haider, in a statement to PTV, emphasized the importance of the general public exercising their right to vote on the polling day, which is set for February 8.
Haider mentioned that election symbols have been allocated to the participating candidates, and the ECP is now ready to commence the printing of ballot papers. This step is crucial in ensuring the smooth conduct of the electoral process.
To uphold the integrity of the elections, Haider informed that Monitoring Cells have been established both at the provincial level and at the ECP Secretariat in Islamabad. These cells are tasked with overseeing and enforcing the election Code of Conduct to maintain a fair and transparent electoral environment.
The allocation of election symbols is a significant aspect of the election process, as it helps voters identify and associate candidates and parties during the polling. The printing of ballot papers is another crucial step, ensuring that the electoral materials are ready for distribution and use on the designated polling day.
The establishment of Monitoring Cells reflects the ECP’s commitment to maintaining the highest standards of fairness and adherence to electoral rules. By having these cells at both the provincial and central levels, the ECP aims to effectively monitor and address any violations of the election Code of Conduct.
As the election day approaches, the ECP’s emphasis on public participation and the completion of necessary preparations underscores the significance of the democratic process in Pakistan. It encourages citizens to play an active role in shaping the country’s political landscape by exercising their right to vote on February 8.
