Lusaka, August 25th, ZANIS—The Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) has officially dispatched ballot papers to all the five constituencies ahead of the September 11 parliamentary by-elections.
ZANIS reports that ECZ public relations manager Chris Akufuna has confirmed the development in a telephone interview in Lusaka this evening.
Mr. Akufuna named the five constituencies where ballot papers have been dispatched as Vubwi, Kasenengwa, Solwezi Central, Mkushi South and Zambezi West.
The Electoral Commission has set 11th September 2014 as the date for the parliamentary by-elections in the named five constituencies.
The five constituencies fail vacant after the Supreme Court nullified the elections of the area Members of Parliament due to alleged electoral malpractice.
