Election 30 October 2015

LAHORE: As the October 31 local bodies elections in Punjab and Sindh have almost approached, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), probably as an ‘after-thought,’ has asked the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) at the eleventh hour to ensure that no media house is allowed to broadcast the ‘unofficial and unconfirmed’ results of the upcoming ballot exercise, a move that is seemingly quite surprising because in today’s modern world gifted with all sorts of mass communication modes, even where there is a ban on declaring these unofficial results, quite authentic numbers keep leaking out once the last vote is cast.
