ISLAMABAD: On Thursday, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) decided to use the Results Transmission System (RTS) in the upcoming by-polls.
The electoral body faced severe criticism after results were unusually delayed during the General Election held on July 25 this year.
PTI demands Nadra chairman’s resignation over RTS malfunction
The delay was attributed to the software. On July 26, ECP secretary Babar Yaqoob had said that the delay poll results had been delayed due to the result transmission system malfunction while data was being entered into it. Opposition parties have since then called the election rigged and called for a probe into the RTS fault.
