More than five lakhs eligible women in Balochistan have not been registered as voters with Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) as they do not have any Computerized National Identity Cards (CNICS).

According Provincial Election Commissioner Muhammad Naeem Jaffar, National Database And Registration Authority (Nadra) does not have any record of the women who belong to the far-flung regions of Balochistan.

Jaffar said efforts were underway to make sure the maximum participation of women from Balochistan in elections. The women in Far-flung areas of Balochistan will be registered as voters till the next elections, he added.

He said, Nadra will send several mobile teams to different areas of Balochistan in order to make sure the registration of women.

Currently 1.5 million women in Balochistan are registered with Election Commission of Pakistan. The total number of registered voters from Balochistan is 3.7 million.
