Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan earlier cast a “sample vote” on an electronic voting machine (EVM) that could be utilized in future elections to improve its credibility and transparency.
Before casting his ballot, the PM was briefed on the process and the performance of the EVMs in order to ensure that the machines were accurate.
Shibli Faraz informed the PM at the briefing that the EVMs were ready and could not be tampered with.
The federal minister informed the Prime Minister that the machine’s software was of good quality and did not require internet access.
The Prime Minister praised the engineers who created the devices. The Ministry of Science and Technology has also agreed to inspect the voting machines for members of Parliament and all four provincial assemblies of the country, as directed by the Prime Minister.
