The CGEP Position Paper on Proposed Electoral Reforms presents electoral reform proposals in key areas ranging from appointment of Chief Election Commissioner to suspending of local governments at the time of elections; monitoring and implementing limits on election expenses to advanced public announcement of polling scheme; efficient working of election tribunals to posting of polling-station wise (progressive) results on the Election Commission web site, and appointment of neutral caretaker government by consensus.CGEP strongly feels that the Government of Pakistan and the Election Commission of Pakistan should adopt, implement and announce the required electoral reforms at this stage. Whereas it is the responsibility of the Government and the ECP to consult all political parties on key reforms, it is equally important from the larger citizens’ standpoint that ECP takes steps that not only assert its fairness and independence but provide level-playing field to all in elections.
