ECZ May Print Ballot Papers Locally

The Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) says it may consider printing ballot papers for the Mpongwe and Livingstone Central parliamentary by-elections locally.

Commission public relations officer Cris Akufuna said it is not in the position to announce where the printing of ballot papers will be done until after the nomination of candidates, but hinted on the possibility of having the documents locally.

He said after the nominations, stake holders, including interested political parties will sit to analyze the possibility of printing the ballots locally, putting into account the security concerns that may arise.

ECZ set January 31, 2013 as the date for nominations while the by-elections in two constituencies and 25 wards will be held in February 28, 2013.
