The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission has initiated the process of preparing the ballot papers which will be used for 2022 general elections. Speaking yesterday, Chebukati confirmed that the tender which was advertised has been given to a campany in Greek to process the ballot papers. Inform P Lykos S A Holdings was given the tender to supply and deliver ballot papers besides registering voters.
"The process is still within the 14 days' standstill period. Therefore, the commission will only be able to authoritatively comment about the contracted firm once the procurement process has been concluded," Mr Chebukati said.
Chebukati confirmed that several parties applied for the tender from United Arab Emirates and United Kingdom by this industry based in Greece beat them grabbing the chance.
He said that the tender will replace a two-year contract which was entered between the commission in 2019 with De La Rue Kenya and EPZ Ltd which included the printing of 20 million ballot papers at Sh3,974 million. It was said that the deal saw the Kenyan firm supply ballot papers which were used in the by elections across the country since September 2019.
