The printing of the ballot papers for the elections has been completed, the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission has revealed.

ZEC commissioner Dr Qhubani Moyo told The Herald that all was set for the polls. “We can confirm that the presidential ballot paper has been printed and is complete. “It was done at Fidelity Printers where political parties went and saw the printing process. Very soon the commission will, in terms of the law, publish the number of ballots that have been printed.”

He added: “We are also going to publish the printing company because the requirement in terms of the Electoral Law is that we must tell people the number of ballot papers that have been printed and the company that printed them.

“Very soon the commission will put a public notice in that regard. The ZEC chairperson (Justice Priscilla Chigumba) will soon make a detailed communication on that.”
