In an interview, [Comelec Commissioner Gregorio] Larrazabal said the ballots for Leyte were shipped out first since these were the ones most recently completed. He said Comelec decided to transfer some of the ballots since the National Printing Office basement is almost filled by the 27 million special ballots that were already printed.
“We cannot put all the ballots in NPO but majority will be stored at the PhilPost warehouse…If the political parties were at the NPO and see how the ballots are stacked, they would realize that we really need to transfer some of the ballots,” he said in a radio dzMM interview.
Larrazabal said NPO printers are churning out 700,000 to 900,000 ballots every day. He added that the Comelec is on track to beat the April 30 deadline to print all 50 million ballots needed for the May 10 automated elections.
