Ballots for the January 28 presidential elections will be ready on Wednesday, Head of the Election Service and Deputy Chief Returning Officer Demetris Demetriou told the Cyprus News Agency (CNA).

Printing for the 580,000 allots began on Sunday and will be completed on Wednesday, he added.

He also said that the election centres have not been finalised yet, adding: “we are at the final stages”.

Regarding prison voters, Demetriou said the election service had already received a list from the central prisons.

As far as the Greek Cypriots in the north were concerned, Demetriou said that he was expecting the final information from the Office of the Commissioner for Humanitarian Issues on Tuesday.

In another development, the Central Election Service has announced that the election booklets of new voters were ready and had already been given to the local community officers where voters can pick them up.

The booklets will be available until January 25. However, those who fail to pick them up, can also vote using their identity cards, provided they are on the electoral list.

The Chief Returning Officer also announced on Monday the number of registered Turkish Cypriot voters. There are 115 Turkish Cypriots registered in the Nicosia district, 235 in Limassol district, 128 in Larnaca district, 174 in Paphos district and 5 in Famagusta district.
