Government Looking To Have 2021 Ballot Papers Printed Locally
Vice President, Inonge Wina has reaffirmed the government’s plans to print the 2021 ballot papers locally as long as technical security matters are addressed.
The Vice President stated that ballot papers are very sensitive and hence require adequate technical securit, a somewhat ironic statement given the questions raised over the UAE printers last election who were accused of fraud.
Mrs Wina disclosed that government has since constituted a committee that will oversee issues of technical security. She further said the committee will continuously monitor the issue of security at government printers.
Mrs. Wina was responding to a question from Nangoma Member of Parliament Boyd Hamusonde who wanted to know whether government has any plans to print ballot papers for the 2021 general elections locally.
