NADRA has leaked sensitive data to PMLN

ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Monday wrote a letter to National Database Registration Authority (NADRA) chairman Usman Yousaf Mobin over an alleged leak in details of voters for general election 2018.

In its letter, the ECP stated that NADRA officials shared details of voters with “unrelated persons”.

Unrelated persons had access to the data regarding voters before it reached ECP , the letter stated.

It further said that NADRA has violated its agreement with ECP regarding the confidentiality of data. NADRA was not permitted to share data with anyone per our agreement, it asserted.

The ECP demanded that the NADRA chairman conducts an inquiry against those involved in the alleged data leak.

A day earlier, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan had reportedly decided to send a petition against the NADRA chairman to the ECP seeking his removal.
