The Results Transmission System (RTS) will be reused by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) for the upcoming by-polls.

The RTS was used in the General Elections 2018 as well and was faced with a lot of criticism for the delaying of results. Controversy was also generated due to the discrepancy in statements of ECP and NADRA regarding the RTS.

The use of RTS for compiling results has been stated in the letters provided to the returning officers (RO’s). NADRA will also provide the presiding officers with software on their phones to compile the results in an efficient and timely manner.

The by-polls will be held on 14th October 2018.
