The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) Friday said that the army would ensure foolproof security during printing and distribution of ballot papers for the general election. The Commission has released its action plan to all four provincial election commissioners for smooth printing and distribution of ballot papers. Papers for ballot have been imported from the United Kingdom and France with special security features so that nobody can print fake ballot papers during the election.

The ECP has also shared its action plan regarding printing and distribution of ballot papers with Pakistan National Security Printing Corporation, Pakistan Post Foundation and Pakistan Printing Corporation Press.

All provincial election commissioners are directed to provide the required number of ballot papers to the relevant printing presses by June 30 so that the printing of the ballot papers can be started as soon as possible, the Commission said.

The ECP said that a letter has also been written to the Armed Forces to ensure foolproof security during printing and distribution of ballot papers.

Meanwhile, the Commission accorded approval to transfers/postings of 965 police inspectors in respect of Punjab province and 137 assistant-commissioners in respect of Sindh province.

The ECP has given the direction to the authorities concerned to make sure that no political implication/interference is involved in the said postings /transfers and no officer be posted at home district of domicile.
