DILI, 29 march 2023 (TATOLI) – The Government, today, approved a draft Resolution on the procurement of ballot papers intended for the parliamentary election on may 21, 2023.

The draft Government Resolution was presented by the Vice Minister of State Administration, Lino de Jesus Torrezão. 

“The Council of Ministers decided not to prevent the production of ballot papers contracted between the Technical Secretariat for Electoral Administration (STAE) and the National Press of Timor-Leste (INTL),” said Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs, Joaquim Amaral, at the State Palace.

Amaral said that the Government decided not to obstruct STAE from establishing procurement procedures, including the acquisition of ballot papers necessary for the parliamentary elections.

The Director-General of STAE, Acilino Manuel Branco, said he would be meeting next week with representatives of the political parties to proceed with the printing of the ballot papers.
