In a move to ensure transparency in the electoral process, the Election Commission of Pakistan has extended an invitation to foreign observers.
The commission is committed to maintaining an open-door policy, allowing both domestic and foreign observers to monitor the elections closely.
Foreign observers who wish to participate in this crucial role must first obtain accreditation from the Election Commission.
To facilitate their visa application process, foreign observers can submit their application forms through the “Pakistan Online Portal” of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as advised by the Election Commission.
Upon their arrival in Pakistan, foreign observers are required to obtain accreditation from ECP.
The necessary forms for accreditation can be downloaded from the ECP’s official website.
It’s important to note that accreditation will not be granted to individuals with political affiliations, ensuring that the observer role remains impartial and unbiased.
In a bid to enhance security measures, ECP has made security clearance mandatory for all foreign observers, further ensuring the integrity of the electoral process.
Foreign observers play a crucial role in monitoring elections and reporting any irregularities they may witness.
They are encouraged to submit detailed reports, which can include suggestions for improving the election process.
By inviting foreign observers and maintaining stringent accreditation and security procedures, the ECP is taking significant steps to uphold the transparency and fairness of elections in Pakistan.
