The Jakarta General Elections Commission (KPU Jakarta) aims to finish printing 7.2 million ballots for the second round of the gubernatorial election, which is slated for April 19, no later than March 29.
“After March 29, all ballots will be delivered to KPU offices in five municipalities and Thousand Islands regency where officers will count, sort and fold the ballots,” KPU Jakarta head Sumarno said as quoted by tribunnews.com on Thursday.
He further said the number of ballots the KPU Jakarta was set to print was in accordance with the number of voters registered on the provisional voter lists.
Sumarno said the number of ballots might increase after the commission finalized the final voter lists on April 6, and would provide additional ballots for the 13,032 polling stations across Jakarta.
Printing house PT Gramedia Printing in Cikarang, West Java, is printing the ballots, the design of which has been agreed by both gubernatorial candidates, Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama and Anies Baswedan. (cal/ebf)
