ISLAMABAD The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has blatantly oversighted the crucial issue related to putting the assets of the sitting MPs and their families on display on its website while drawing up its five-year strategic reforms plan. Well-placed sources informed TheNation on Tuesday that the ECP, which has recently unveiled a five-year strategic reform plan, failed to include the most sought-after public issue of putting on display the assets and the liabilities of the sitting MPs and their families as a regular feature on its website. However, sources in the ECP while acknowledging the importance of the leftover issue of public importance informed TheNation that this issue could be addressed only through a piece of legislation. They were of the view that ECP compiled a booklet on the subject matter regularly but had yet to address the issue of displaying that data on its official website. Meanwhile, Chief Election Commissioner Justice (Retd) Hamid Ali Mirza has called upon the Members of the Parliament and Provincial Assemblies to submit the yearly statements of assets and liabilities of their own, their spouses and dependents to the ECP by September 30. This, according to the informed sources, is a mandatory requirement under Section 42A of the Representation of the People Act, 1976 and Section 25A of the Senate (Elections) Act, 1975. In its pre-emptive move, Islamabad-based not-for-profit research institute, Pakistan Institute of Legislative Development and Transparency (PILDAT), has also called upon the Election Commission to help ensure that the declarations submitted by each Senator, MNA and MPA are placed on its website.
