ISLAMABAD: The process of door-to-door verification of Karachi‘s deeply contentious voters’ lists will begin from January 5, Express News reported on Friday.

The process is expected to take 69 days to be completed.

This tedious method of verifying the voters’ list was suggested by the Supreme Court during a hearing of a related case.

The Election Commission of Pakistan had earlier called this exercise “unworkable”. However, the commission agreed to do so with the help of the Army.

Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Justice (retd) Fakhruddin G Ebrahim had said that the SC order on verification of voters lists will be implemented in letter and spirit.

Karachi being marginalized again, quota system, discrimination in institutions and killing are all dirty ploys. Karachites have always been discriminated against in the past,Why an Official from punjab being nominated to overlook the process.

People do not vote for MQM out of duress, the MQM has given a sense of identity to Urdu speaking pakistanis (everybody still call us mohajirs anyway) who had no where else to go.

MQM delivered when it had the power during Musharraf Karachi prospered and developed, so why this non compromising attitude towards MQM. is it because that it represents indian migrants?
