Observers deployed by the Free and Fair Election Network (Fafen) have reported an average of three illegalities or irregularities per polling station during elections in Gilgit-Baltistan (GB).

According to a preliminary report on the elections released by Fafen, the irregularities observed included breach of secrecy of the vote, stamping of ballots by others on behalf of voters, and the failure of registered voters, who did have national identity cars, to cast their ballots due to various reasons.

Such issues could have been avoided with more diligent enforcement of rules by the GB’s election commission, Fafen said.
