CHP deputy asks PM if Turkey will print ballot papers in Slovenia
Cihan PhotoRepublican People’s Party (CHP) Istanbul deputy Sezgin Tanrıkulu has given a parliamentary question to Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu, asking whether the ballot papers for the possible forthcoming election will be printed in Slovenia.
Tanrıkulu gave the parliamentary question on Aug. 19, addressing Davutoğlu over the printing of the ballot papers ahead of potential early elections in the country later this year.
“The Higher Election Board [YSK] declared that the ballot papers will be printed in Slovenia. The fact that the ballot papers and envelopes [would be] produced in Slovenia in 2015 brings to mind the possibility of fraud in the elections,” said Tanrıkulu in his statement.
He asked whether it was true the ballots were to be printed in Slovenia and the reason of this decision. Tanrıkulu also asked which firms in Slovenia would produce the ballots and the name of the firm’s Turkey representative, in addition to whether the firm would only produce the paper, or if the ballots would be printed on the paper by the firm as well.
