NADRA’s resources would be used to introduce the electronic voting system in Pakistan, he said and added that Election Commission of Pakistan was also being asked in this regard.

He added that a bill containing such developments would be presented in the parliament soon.

The prime minister said that elections in Azad Kashmir and Senate were coming soon, while general election in Pakistan would be held in 2023.
