Overseas Pakistanis can vote in the by-elections

The Election Commission of Pakistan secretary, Babar Yaqoob, has said that overseas Pakistanis will be allowed to vote in the by-elections.

The Supreme Court gave the ECP the green light on Friday to go ahead with this pilot project.

Yaqoob told SAMAA TV that the Supreme Court has ordered that if there are any doubts about the votes, they will not be counted. But until then, we plan to count the votes, he said.
