ISLAMABAD - The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has formally approved a plan on the revision of electoral rolls for the year 2016.

Under the plan, all new national identity card holders will be made part of the electoral rolls and all disqualified voters will be excluded from the rolls.

According to the plan, a 20-day door-to-door verification campaign will be carried out from 10th August to 29th August, which will be followed by 21 days of display process starting from 20th September.  For the said purpose verifying officials shall visit the permanent addresses of the new CNIC holders for their verification.
