The overseas community of Pakistan cordially welcomes the decision of Pakistan's government to pave way for the overseas nationals to participate in the general elections:

Asif Khan: Secretary General Overseas Pakistanis Welfare Council): Pakistan is bestowed with around 9 million diasporas around the globe that are working diligently in coherence with national interest of the country. Right to vote is the fundamental democratic right of every individual as per the spirits of constitutional and international law. Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan himself has stayed in  UK and he is well aware of the intricacies of the matters of overseas nationals. The overseas community of Pakistan cordially welcomes the decision of Pakistan's government to pave way for the overseas nationals to participate in the general elections. Moreover, overseas community is eager to play their constructive role in political and socio-economic domains. Still, the overseas community has an apprehension that Election Commission of Pakistan might curtail  their right to vote just like they did in the general elections , 2018. The bureaucracy and government should reconcile their differences and should envisage the benefits of having an inclusive voting mechanism.
