Election Commission Of Pakistan: Voting Rights for Overseas Pakistanis.

According to the constitution of Pakistan, Overseas Pakistanis (OP) have the right to cast their vote. Election Commission of Pakistan(ECP) recognizes this. We have yet to see a protocol being set up so that OP's can vote. Overseas Pakistanis demand that ECP prevents any body of government, institution, individual, or group from blocking OP's constitutional right. We ask ECP to set up a system so that we may exercise our right.
The set up for OP's to vote does not take a long time. There has been voting in the past (i.e. Musharraf's Referendum).
We expect OP's rights not to be violated and for us to be able to cast our votes for Election 2013.
It Is Our Right & We Demand It.

      It is the right of every Pakistani to be able to vote. Democracy is incomplete when an entire section of society is barred from exercising their right to vote.

      This is a right of Pakistani's to vote, without having to make the arduous journey to home turf to make their opinion count. Soon I will be a Pakistani citizen as well, and see this as a right, not a privilege, to vote from overseas.
