The Selection Committee has to submit a list of 36 nominees to the Presidential Palace, from which the president will select members of IEC and IECC.
The panel has so far evaluated applications of 722 individuals applying for the post of commissioners on the two electoral bodies, rejecting 222 nominees, said Yousuf Rashid, a member and spokesman of the committee. They had completed identification process for the nominees.
222 applicants --- 182 applying for IEC and 40 for IECC --- were identified as unqualified in the first phase of the selection process.
The selection committee in the second phase of its operation started technical review of documents of qualified nominees.
The number of unqualified applicants probably rose because most of them came from irrelevant fields.
In the second phase qualified nominees were selected and shortlisted, 63 of them for IEC and 45 for IECC.
