Gill took to Twitter to tweet the details of the verdict, stating that the apex court’s decision of having the votes traced.

“It is the responsibility of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to protect the election from corruption,” the Supreme Court of Pakistan had said today in its much-awaited verdict.

The parliament can pass constitutional amendments, the top court said. It emphasised that all institutions were bound to follow the ECP.

The bench said that the secrecy of the ballot papers, however, was “not final”, quoting a decision by the top court on the same in 1967 (Niaz Ahmed case).

A detailed judgement is expected to be issued shortly.

It also said that the ECP could “use the latest technology to ensure the holding of transparent elections” under powers granted to it according to Article 218 of the Constitution (related to the formation of election commission).
