The Elections Secretariat states that tenants of rented out properties are eligible to apply to cast their vote from their current residential address.
According to a spokesperson from the secretariat, during certain instances tenants are precluded from entering their names into the voters list by landholders.
This is owing to a common misconception in believing that tenants would be eligible to claim proprietorship concerning the rented out property, if they are permitted to enter in their names to the voters name list.
Hence according to the Spokesperson from the Election Secretariat landholders prohibit tenants from entering their names to the votes name list.
Tenants are able to inform the elections secretariat if they are prohibited from entering their names into the voters name list by landlords.
Meanwhile according to the latest estimates 1.5 million rupees will be required to conduct the impending local government elections within three provincial councils.
According to the elections secretariat a sum of 500 million rupees will be required from each provincial council in order to conduct the impending local government elections owing to rising cost of goods & services.
The elections secretariat notes that if elections are held simultaneously throughout all provinces the cost could be curtailed.
