KARACHI: Secretary Election Commission Pakistan (ECP) Babar Yaqoob said they don’t have enough time to install biometric system in NA-246 constituency ahead of the by-elections.

The ECP secretary said that Rangers would be given magisterial powers on polling day, whereby they can arrest offenders in case any voter fraud is reported.

He said 358,000 ballot papers are being printed under the supervision of Pakistan Army and Rangers.

Responding to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) reservations on ‘ghost polling stations’; Yaqoob said they are investigating the claims.
