As Pakistan prepares for its upcoming elections, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has established stringent guidelines to ensure a transparent and fair electoral process. The ECP has enforced strict rules to maintain impartiality, prohibiting government officers and employees from engaging in election-related activities. A conditional ban on holidays has been imposed to prevent government officers from participating in election activities, safeguarding the integrity of the electoral process.

The ECP has also implemented extensive surveillance measures, installing CCTV cameras in approximately 17,500 highly sensitive polling stations nationwide. The ECP’s control room in Islamabad, scheduled to begin operations on December 27, will oversee the monitoring of these stations, with monitoring teams taking swift action against any violations of the election code of conduct.

Furthermore, the ECP has revealed plans to install CCTV cameras at more than 6,500 polling stations in Punjab, 4,500 in Sindh, 2,000 in Balochistan, and 4,500 in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. This meticulous monitoring process will continue until the finalization of the election results.

The ECP has also released priority lists for political parties vying for minority seats. Notably, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has been excluded from these ongoing priority lists, signaling an interesting turn in the electoral dynamics.

Simultaneously, the electoral watchdog has launched a rigorous campaign to enforce adherence to the election code of conduct. Monitoring teams have taken swift action, removing promotional materials deemed in violation of the guidelines in Islamabad.

These measures demonstrate the ECP’s commitment to maintaining a fair and transparent electoral process, ensuring that the upcoming elections are conducted with integrity and impartiality.
