EDITORIAL | Well done ECP: Voting rights to Persons with Disabilities
With general elections believed to be just around the corner, Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) is believed to have made elaborate arrangements to facilitate Persons with Disabilities (PWD) for casting their votes. Information gathered by a team of Pakistan Special (PS) revealed that authorities will accord top priority to PWDs as compared to general population on the day of polling to make sure that not a single one of them faces any difficulty when exercising his or her constitutional right. Sharing details of the plan, officials in ECP informed that special ramps will be placed at all polling stations throughout the country to give PWDs easy access to booths. PWDs will not be required to wait in queues like general public to cast votes.
