Printing of Parliamentary ballot papers started - EC boss

The Electoral Commission chairperson, Charlotte Osei has told the BBC the printing of ballot papers for the Parliamentary elections has begun.

With some 33 days to the general elections, Mrs Osei said the EC, whilst awaiting the verdict of the courts on the many suits against it, had to start material over which there is no dispute.

The presidential ballot, she explained, would be printed after the cases are settled and a determination is made as who is qualified to participate in the election, she asserted.

She made these statements in an interview with the BBC and former Joy FM's news anchor, Akwasi Sarpong.

The EC boss stressed that the Commission will ensure successful elections in December.
