CHITRAL, Jan 29: District Nazim Maghfirat Shah has urged people to ensure participation of women voters in the general elections and said that the district government would extend all kinds of cooperation in this regard.
The nazim told people to exercise their right to vote and bring about a positive change in the social and political spheres of the society.
Addressing a seminar on the theme of “Voters’ education campaign” here on Tuesday, he said that in the past the elections did not serve the purpose to strengthen democracy and democratic values in the country. The seminar was held under the auspices of the Rural Community Development Program (RCDP). The nazim said that democracy could not flourish in the country due to the ‘money factor’ involved in the poll process. But the electorates wielded the power to send people to the parliament which reflected their wishes and aspirations, he added.
