PRINTING OF BALLOT PAPERS FOR ZAMBIAN POLLS COMPLETED

The printing of ballot papers for Zambia’s general election on Aug 11 has been completed by the AL Ghurair Printing and Publishing Company in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The company’s General Manger, Lakshmanan Ganapathy, Wednesday told a Zambian delegation which is here to witness the printing of the ballot papers that packaging of the ballor papers for the Presidential, National Assembly, Referendum and Mayoral polls had been completed and it only remained for the same to be done for ballot papers for the local government elections.

Ganapathy said the company would complete all the packaging by Saturday in readiness to send the ballot papers to the airport.

The Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) says it is happy with the way the printer has worked and the manner in which all the party representatives had worked while in Dubai.

ECZ Commissioner David Matongo thanked the representatives for their co-operation.

Matongo also said there is a need for political leaders to be magnanimous when they win an election and also when they have to accept defeat. The ECZ on its part is doing everything possible to ensure that the playing field is even.
