UN chief expresses support for ECP amid ballot rigging allegations
In a statement issued by Guterres’ Spokesman Stephane Dujarric, “The Secretary-General commends the Electoral Commission of Pakistan for the organization of the elections, noting positive initiatives related to training and efforts to enhance the inclusion of women, persons with disabilities and other marginalized groups, as well as first-time voters, in the electoral process”.
“The United Nations is committed to continue to support the Electoral Commission,” it added.
