Seshan, Former Chief Election Commissioner of India (Via Video link from India) were the speaker in the seminar while Mr. Ahsan Iqbal, Information Secretary PML-N and Ms. Sherry Rehman, Information Secretary, PPPP were the panellists.

 
 

Mr. Andrew M. Raucci, stressed the need for an independent election commission and an independent judicial system to ensure free, fair and transparent elections in a country. He was of the view that people should have complete confidence in the judiciary. Mr. T. N.
