The new voting documents, which are set to be distributed to households as from tomorrow, do not have the necessary safety features, and the ink can be easily wiped off, PN Deputy Leader Beppe Fenech Adami revealed this evening. Addressing a press conference, Dr Fenech Adami, accompanied by the PN Secretary General Rosette Thake, said that the PN was informed that due to a problem in the lamination machine, the documents were printed on plastic paper, instead of the standard lamination.
He said that the electoral commission had said that it experienced some issues with the lamination machines. The PN is informed that the commission was not provided with a new lamination machine so it opted to print on a plastic paper.
“The political parties were given a guarantee that, in line with the law, the voting documents would have strong security features that would make abuse impossible.”
