Ballots for Msanzala bye-election will be printed outside Zambia-ECZ

The Electoral Commission of Zambia says ballot papers for the forthcoming Msanzala parliamentary by-election will still be printed outside the country.

ECZ Director Priscilla Isaac in a statement released to QFM explains that Commission will outsource the printing of ballot papers because the Government Printers is still not able to meet the full requirements and specifications for the printing of ballot papers.

Ms Isaac says the tender process for the identification of a printer has started and that all stakeholders will be advised once the Commission has identified a suitable printer to print the ballot papers for the Msanzala parliamentary by-election and four local government by-elections.

The ECZ Director was earlier in the day quoted by ZNBC News as saying ballot papers for the forthcoming by-elections will be printed locally, and that the selected local printer would be announced in due course.
