He also said that more than 118 electoral authorities in the structures at all levels have participated in the a long process of training.

According to the CEN vice president, the updating of the list of electors concluded today and the information will be processed until tomorrow to present the definitive lists to the municipal electoral commissions on March 5 at the latest.

Besides, they worked restlessly to print the ballot papers, which had been already taken to the different municipalities, he told the news agency Prensa Latina.
