Printing of parliamentary ballots almost complete

The representative of the United Party for National Development (UPND) at the Universal Printing Group (UPG) in Durban, South Africa Brian Hapunda has said the printing of ballot papers is going on well and there is no reason to suspect foul play.

In a telephone interview, Hapunda said 60% of the parliamentary ballot papers have been printed and the process will be complete in the next two days.

He also said to ensure transparency all political party representatives will today engage in an exercise to test the ballot papers to clear speculations that on polling day when the electorate cast their vote for another party besides the Movement for Multi-party Democracy (MMD) the mark will automatically shift to where the face of the ruling party candidate is.

Hapunda further assured that his party will do its best and be vigilant to ensure the printing process is transparent as it is the only way to have free and fair elections.
