The PTI-led government has delivered their promise by providing overseas Pakistanis 'right to vote'

Riaz Hassan (Overseas Pakistani, UK): The PTI-led government has delivered their promise by providing overseas Pakistanis 'right to vote'. It was quite a bold step and Prime Minister Imran Khan should be lauded for his boldness. The overseas community has cordially welcomed the decision of Pakistan's government. Pakistan has embraced a paradigm shift in their political landscape and the overseas community is looking forward to an inclusive decision making system. Overseas Pakistanis have been included in the decision making process for the first time in the history since independence. Such political developments will pave way for them to share their input in the progress of Pakistan. Pakistan's overseas community is well aware of the legislation that is imperative to their eligibility for voting in general elections. There is some ambiguity about the modus operandi of the voting process but everything will get clear once the federal government devises a consolidated policy.
