Speaking to journalists, after the formal symbolic delivery of the credentials of the delegates on the list of political formations that compete in the general elections, CNE spokesman Lucas Quilundo said that the last batch of electoral material was also received.
The process took two months and involved four shipments by sea of complementary material for the general elections, and ten shipments by air, totaling more than 68 tons of cargo made up of sensitive logistics, he said.
It includes material from polling stations such as ballot boxes, ballot papers, minutes, indelible ink, stamps, etc.
“It is one more step towards the unstoppable march of the general elections of 24 August”, stressed the official of the CNE.
The material will begin to be distributed immediately, being transported first to the provincial electoral commissions, then to the municipal electoral commissions and finally to the polling stations, where they must be within 48 hours of the election day.
The electoral logistics related to the August 24 elections were awarded to the Spanish company INDRA, selected by public tender, amid criticism from the opposition, which accuses the company of fraudulent practices.
On polling day, 13,238 polling stations will operate, comprising 26,488 polling stations. Outside the country, 26 polling stations will be set up, corresponding to 45 polling stations and will be installed in 25 cities in twelve countries. 105,952 members will be recruited to work at polling stations.
