We may be moving steadily closer to a system where it becomes possible to pick up electoral fraud, using sophisticated electronic technology now available. Following the moving of an electoral tribunal by a PTI candidate, Muhammad Zubair Khan, who according to announced results had lost by a huge margin to the MQM’s Iqbal Muhammad Ali in NA 256, Karachi, NADRA has put before the tribunal evidence showing that over 57,000 votes could not be verified in the constituency. Around 5,893 duplicate and 1,950 fake votes were also cast. Widespread irregularities had also been uncovered previously on NA-250, also in Karachi — the city where it is now quite clear the most problems arose at the time of the general poll. Allegations made then are turning out to be justified.
