The National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA), on Tuesday, issued a clarification regarding a fake message circulating on social media regarding overseas voting.
In a Twitter post, the authority said that a fake message is circulating on social media, claiming that the NADRA, in collaboration with the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), has developed a mechanism for overseas voting.

“It is clarified that no such message has been shared/issued/published by NADRA,” the tweet stated.
In a similar development, the ECP also rejected news reports suggesting that it was not ready to conduct general elections within three months.
Earlier in the day, a news outlet published a report quoting ‘ECP officials’ that the election commission needs at least six months for preparations for the general elections.
However, the ECP issued a clarification on its official Twitter handle, saying no such statement was issued by the commission.
