“The ballot papers will be printed under the monitoring of 150 security personnel. We will start printing ballot papers as soon as we receive direction from the EC,” said Acharya, adding, “A team of Nepal Army is arriving for security.”
Nine printing machines are standby to print 20 million ballot papers under the three-tier of security.
