Many women miss out on voter registration in Pakistan

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Friday said it would take the parliamentarians and donor agencies on board to increase women participation in electoral process. ECP Secretary Babar Yaqoob said the commission wanted greater political participation of women.

An obstacle to improving the participation of women in elections was that around one million women were without identity cards and therefore could not register to vote.
