The Elections Commission (EC) has denied allegations that the commission's re-registration portal for the presidential election had been hacked.
After the initial round of the presidential election concluded, the EC opened a two-day re-registration period for voters participating in the second round. During this timeframe, the EC received an unusually high volume of applications, sparking suspicions of possible wrongdoing. At a press conference held Sunday, the PPM-PNC leadership suggested that former EC members had access to the portal.
In response to these allegations, Ismail Habeeb, the Vice President of the EC, clarified that the re-registration portal was not accessible to former EC members or unrelated personnel. Habeeb also underscored the EC's capability to detect and address any external hacking attempts targeting the presidential election re-registration portal.
Habeeb urged the public to refrain from spreading baseless rumors regarding the re-registration portal's security.
