He asserted that the ballot printing tender was conducted in a transparent manner.

"There are not any additional ballots. Because we do not anticipate a 100% turnout, we have printed enough ballots for only the registered voters, and any spoiled votes will be accommodated " he added.

The head of the IEBC also affirmed that the commission is prepared to conduct the elections on August 9 and is currently hiring personnel to assist in carrying them out.
