Talking to APP, a spokesperson for the ECP stated that they have completed all the arrangements to conduct free, fair, and transparent general elections across the country tomorrow.

Additionally, the printing of 260 million ballot papers for all constituencies has also been completed. According to the spokesperson, National Assembly ballots are distinguished by their green paper, while Provincial Assembly ballots are printed on white paper.
