The National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) has rejected reports claiming the breach in voters data as alleged by some political quarters.
Nadra issued a clarification a day after the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) wrote a letter to the authority, in which it raised the issue of a leak of voters’ data by someone in the authority to the PML-N. The ECP letter said that the breach had occurred in the computerized electoral rolls system (CERS).
Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, four director generals of the Nadra rejected the allegations. They said, “There has never been a data breach in the history of Nadra. We have never shared any citizen’s data with anyone.”
Nadra chairman, however, was not present during the presser.
They added that in the ECP letter there was no mention of the security breach.
