ISLAMABAD: The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Pakistan has said that the UNDP along with its partners is supporting the Election Commission of Pakistan in organizing polls efficiently.

In an interview with Radio Pakistan, Country Director UNDP, Marc-Andre Franche said the forthcoming general elections provide a historic opportunity for the country to re-order its developmental priorities.

He said one of the immediate goals of the new government to be formed after the elections should be to evolve consensus on some of the key reforms and changes in budgetary allocations.

He said some of the improvements in the system introduced by the Commission including voters' education, training of polling and security staff and results management are very impressive.
