Presidential Ballot Printing Complete, Papers Arrive Next Week

July 27, 2017, 10:58 pm

Dubai-based Al Ghurair Publishing Firm on Thursday night completed the printing of the presidential ballot papers.

The ballot papers will be delivered into the country on Monday and Tuesday next week in two chartered planes.

The Court had initially cancelled the tender for presidential ballot papers and ordered for fresh tendering that should include public participation.

However, the exercise commenced soon after the Court of Appeal gave a go a head.

Each county will have its papers packed together.

Constituency papers will be bound in a labelled pallet.

The NASA coalition had repeatedly claimed that the Al Ghurair firm had contact with President Uhuru Kenyatta before it was awarded the tender.

Prior to the stop order, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission had scheduled the printing to start on Tuesday, July 18.

The first batch of ballot papers for the August 8 elections arrived in the country on Tuesday night last week.
