Bulgarians will not be able to use a voting machine in March 26’s early election, officials say. The Central Election Commission (CEC) on Saturday scrapped the single offer submitted during the tender to deliver 12 500 voting machines needed. At a meeting that went into the evening, a special committee noted the bidder, a firm named Lireks, was unable to match the expectations and deliver the machines by March 10 and install the software by March 17. Lireks had insisted the newly built machines would arrive by March 20 with a software already installed.
