Elections Commission (EC) on Monday night published the final voters registry for the upcoming Parliamentary Election.

The detailed registry lists 264,442 voters eligible to vote in the election slated for April 6.

EC member Ahmed Akram noted that, following the withdrawal of some candidacies, the number of candidates now stood at 387.

The electoral watchdog also increased the total number of ballot boxes to 505.

The commission advised voters to check their registered polling stations properly from the list, as some changes were made to the voting centres since the September 2018 Presidential Election.

"Information on the location of voters' ballot boxes will placed outside the polling centres. Officials will also be on the scene to assist", said Akram.
