The Electoral Commission yesterday received a vehicle donated by the Indian Government through the Indian High Commission.

Chairperson of the Electoral Commission Suresh Chandra told the Indian High Commissioner Vishvas Sapkal, that it would boost their preparations for the 2018 General Election.

“An election poses to be the largest logistics exercise that any country would conduct in peace time,” Mr Chandra said.

“Such a massive operation must always be supported by the presence of logistics equipment such as vehi­cles for transport.

“Considering the effort that is required to conduct an election in a day as well as the requirements for the logistics of the Electoral Commission in travelling to and from other engagements, such an important ges­ture by the Indian Government will go a long way in facilitating the requirements of elections.”

Mr Sapkal informed Mr Chandra that the Govern­ment of India intends to further furnish the Electoral Commission with four more vehicles.

The Indian High Commission earlier donated indel­ible ink to the FEO for use in the 2018 General Elec­tion.
