“We have given them conditions, if those conditions are not met there will be no elections on October 17,” Raila stated.
NASA demands that all the forms in the repeat elections to be pre-printed indicating names of polling stations and candidates.
The opposition outfit also demand that Returning Officers must physically fill the forms and make a formal declaration at the tallying centres. They further want a new firm other than Dubai-based Al Ghurair be awarded the ballot printing tender and non-standardized forms.
