2.6 million women in Balochistan are deprived of right to vote: Women activists



QUETTA: Women Rights activists on Saturday said that 2.6 million women in Balochistan are deprived of right to vote and millions more will be unable to vote if necessary arrangements are not done for their registration.

Sana Durrani President Balochistan Women Network (BWN) and Mis Haleema Chairperson Health and Rural Development (HARD) and Gul Khan Nseer  in a press conference at Quetta Press Club demanded NADRA to increase the number of mobile Registration Vans to register more women for provision of Computerized National Identity Cards (CNICs) from National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra).

Sana Durrani asked for reduction in the fee charges of registering CNICs at minimum level in order to provide facilities to poor women and their family members for availing CNICs.

“The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) should work with political parties and Civil Society Organization (CSOs) to assist in voting registration in order to ensure women voting in upcoming general and local elections.” Mis Haleema demanded.

Mentioning the ECPs voters’ data Mr Gul Khan Naseer said: “The unregistered vote per women shows that Balochistan has the worst score as 27 out of 100 women are still not listed to cast their vote in the upcoming elections. Balochistan has the most unsatisfactory figures in unregistered vote per women.”

The women activists demanded ECP and NADRA for rapid response for successful political process and tangible actions against obstacles confronting women voters in Balochistan.

The Rise of China-Europe RailwaysMarch 6, 2018The Dawn of a New Commercial Era?For over two millennia, technology and politics have shaped trade across the Eurasian supercontinent. The compass and domesticated camels helped the “silk routes” emerge between 200 and 400 CE, and peaceful interactions between the Han and Hellenic empires allowed overland trade to flourish. A major shift occurred in the late fifteenth century, when the invention of large ocean-going vessels and new navigation methods made maritime trade more competitive. Mercantilism and competition among Europe’s colonial powers helped pull commerce to the coastlines. Since then, commerce between Asia and Europe has traveled primarily by sea.1Against this historical backdrop, new railway services between China and Europe have emerged rapidly. Just 10 years ago, regular direct freight services from China to Europe did not exist.2 Today, they connect roughly 35 Chinese…
