Lahore: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president and opposition leader in National Assembly (NA) on Sunday has rejected Prime Minister Imran Khan's suggestion of using Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) in general elections.

In a statement on twitter, the PML-N leader said that the whole world has already rejected the application of electronic voting system and Pakistan Election Commission (ECP) has declared it unworkable.

“Such important national tasks cannot be implemented at the request or order of a specific individual,” he added.

He further stated that PML-N had carried out electoral reforms in 2018 via consultation with all political parties, including the opposition Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), adding that “No one objected to these electoral reforms in our time”.

“When the opposition was talking about positive proposals and the economic charter, they were insulted by the slogan of NRO,” PML-N leader stressed.

He lashed out at government saying, “Worry about the ruined economy, inflation and unemployment, instead of electronic voting.”
