Electoral Commission Says Logistics For the Elections Will be Completed by November 26th

Daniel Ngoy, President of the Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI) affirmed that the 180,000 ballot boxes were almost all delivered to the 62,000 polling stations. In order to acclerate the process to have all the boxes and ballots delivered in advance of the elections, the CENI has rented 30 helicopters and a dozen air crafts. Angola has offered to provide support with helicopters as well.

The delivery of the 64 million ballots is the main concern for the CENI. South Africa is supposed to deliver the last shipment today. Once the shipment arrives from South Africa, the ballots will then have to be distributed throughout the country.

The President of the CENI has assured the Congolese people that all will be in place and ready to go by November 26th, two days before the polls open for voting on November 28th.
