The United Party for National Development says there is nothing wrong with printing ballot papers from South Africa.
UPND deputy spokesperson told Hot Fm radio that what is important is to ensure that elections are free and fair.
He said it’s not realistic to ask the Electoral Commission of Zambia to print the ballots in Zambia when the process has already begun in South Africa.
He said ECZ should make sure ballots are printed in Zambia.
The Patriotic Front is demanding that ballots papers should be printed in Zambia.
PF secretary general Wynter Kabimba said printing ballots are a security issue and that ECZ explain the tender procedure used.
He said PF should be engaged before the ballots are printed
