The Pakistani Election Commission lists approximately 800 voters as Jewish although there are virtually no Jews in the country, according to the country’s The News website contributor Dr. Abdul Majeed Abid.
He facetiously asked, “We can only wait to see which way the ‘Jewish vote’ goes, if it goes anywhere.”
He noted that no Jews are running for public office and no political party has tried to woo the supposed Jewish voters, leaving open the question why the Elections Commission bothers to list Jews as a minority.
