The National Election Commission reportedly has not settled more than Rs. 200 million in dues for the printing work carried out by the Department of Government Printing in recent months.
According to a spokesperson, the Department has notified the Election Commission on several occasions to settle the dues.
It is reported that the Department is facing several issues over the failure of the Commission to complete the payments.
The Department of Government Printing on the request of the Election Commission commenced printing documents and ballot papers for the Local Authorities Election.
The Department has already completed printing postal ballots of several districts.
The printed documents are securely stored in the Department’s premises and will be released on the request of the Election Commission.
