An Election Secretariat spokesman said that the ballot boxes required for holding the election are scheduled to be taken from district election secretariats to polling centres this forenoon under special police protection.

While the necessary stationery too are scheduled to be transported along with the ballot boxes, Officers in charge of polling centres too would be travelling with these to the polling centres.

3247 polling centres have been set up in the seven districts belonging to the  three provincial councils.
