Voting rights for expats
This news is a big one. Goes without saying, it was PTI that approached teh apex court for expat voting rights.
اچھی خبر ہے، ووٹ کا حق ہے تو ڈالنے کا انتظام بھی ہونا چاہیے
ویسے پتہ نہیں یہ کیس پہلے سے ہی آج کی تاریخ میں تھا یا "اتفاقیہ" کل والے معاملے کے بعد اس موضوع پر سپریم کورٹ نے اچھا فیصلہ دیا ہے
They can vote but then dont have right to ask SC to have elections in right spirit and under free ECP?
Votes of Pakistanis, living abroad, could be effective, best within a System of Proportional Representation where votes are casted for political Parties and not to candidates.
All this discussion is purely academic as there is no mechanism for overseas Pakistanis to vote, Senate told
ISLAMABAD: Overseas Pakistanis do have the right to vote, but absence of a suitable mechanism for the purpose will render it meaningless, at least for the upcoming general election.
This was what Law Minister Farooq H. Naek told the Senate on Friday - Feb 1st.
Turn the consulates into polling stations. This is no rocket science.
It looks like, it is not happening this election cycle.
Only those overseas Pakistanis, who can afford to take trip back to Pakistan, will be voting.
They could have tried, postal ballots.

You are right, they should have tried postal votes.
All Pak embassies can be used as polling stations.
