Pakistan Election day mobile and internet services are suspends

Pakistan Election: Voting is taking place in Pakistan today to elect the new government. But the special thing is that mobile services have been suspended in the entire country (Mobile service suspended in Pakistan). According to media reports, even mobile internet services are suspended in many areas. All this happened after the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) had said that internet services would remain operational on Thursday. The opposition is expressing its anger over the suspension of mobile services on election day.

Earlier on Wednesday, PTA had said in a statement that it had not received any instructions from the government to shut down the internet. Mobile services will continue on Thursday. However, such indications had already been given by the government that mobile services could be suspended to deal with any untoward incident on the day of voting. This is what was seen on Thursday.

According to reports, the Election Commission of Pakistan says that suspension of mobile service will not affect voting. Chief Election Commissioner Sikandar Sultan Raja says that the elections will be conducted in a fair manner. The Election Commission also said that switching off or running mobile services does not come under its jurisdiction.

Pakistan Election Commission said that their entire system does not require internet during voting, hence it will not affect the voting. The opposition is angry over the suspension of mobile services on the election day. Imran Khan's party PTI has called it a suppression of the rights of citizens.
