      A budget of W327 billion has been set aside to administer the general elections on Wednesday, the National Election Commission said Sunday (US$1=W1,153).

      Some 340,000 people will be mobilized to manage polling stations and count votes. The number of eligible voters stands at over 42.1 million, an all-time high, though it remains to be seen how many will turn out.

      A total of 67 million ballot sheets have been printed and 320,000 election posters put up at some 87,000 locations across the country.
