Ballot papers to reach ROs 7 days before polls: EC
Election Commission Secretary Helal Uddin Ahmed on Friday said ballot papers will reach returning officers in all the 300 constituencies seven days before the 11thparliamentary elections slated for December 30.
"We've started the printing of ballot papers. We hope we'll be able to reach those to the returning officers seven days before the election day," he said while briefing reporters at Nirbachan Bhaban in the afternoon.
The EC secretary said there are High Court orders about candidacy in some parliamentary seats. "We're trying to print the ballot papers in line with the court orders," he said.
Helal also said armed forces members will be deployed for 10 days from December 24 as the striking in the election.
