The last consignment of ballot papers for the forthcoming mayoral, council chairpersonship and local government by-elections have arrived in Zambia.
The consignment, which consisted of 11 pallets, makes a complete set of 27 pallets containing ballot papers for the July 26, 2018 by-elections.
The 16 other pallets arrived in the country yesterday.
The National Democratic Congress Party, which was the only one present at the Kenneth Kaunda International Airport (KKIA) and Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) officials, expressed delight with the transparency exhibited by the commission ahead of the July 26th by-elections.
NDC Media Director Emmanuel Malite said his party was ready for the polls stating that its candidate has been well received by the electorate.
Mr. Malite has meanwhile praised the law enforcement agencies for ensuring that campaigns are violent free.
On Thursday next week, the ECZ will conduct by-elections for mayor, council chairpersons and local government in various parts of the country.
