Call for dual vote rights for minorities in Pakistan
Islamabad, July 26 (ANI): Federal Public Service Commission chairman Justice (retd) Rana Bhagwandas has called for dual vote rights for minorities in Pakistan, saying that minorities should be allowed to exercise their right of franchise in favour of their candidates against general seats as well as the seats reserved for their respective communities.
Bhagwandas was addressing a seminar entitled organised by the Ministry of National Harmony, where speakers from different minorities in Pakistan unanimously demanded the government to give them the right of dual vote, reports The Nation.
"In a separate electoral system, for convenience of candidates contesting against a minority seat, whole of Pakistan may be divided according to the number of seats reserved for one community and each part be declared as one constituency," Bhagwandas said.
He also suggested that the number of reserved seats for minorities should be increased, which is presently 2.92 percent, since the total population of non-Muslims in the country was 3.72 percent. (ANI)
