Electoral Council calls on political parties to assist candidates.
PHILIPSBURG:— The Electoral Council would like to remind the 125 candidates who contested the 2016 parliamentary elections that, in accordance with the National Ordinance on Registration and Finances of Political Parties, they are required to record all donations received, be it in cash, by check or in kind. These records must be submitted to the Electoral Council ultimately on Wednesday, October 26, 2016.
All candidates are also informed that- based on the experience after the 2014 elections- the Electoral Council will not be able to assist candidates with the completion of their donation registration. Candidates who do not know how to complete the donation registration online are advised to seek assistance from their party. The Electoral Council is, therefore, calling on all party boards to monitor donations received by their candidates and to assist them with the accurate registration of donations.
All candidates are also required to date and sign their donations register and to certify that this was completed accurately and truthfully. The original document should be submitted to the Electoral Council. Non-compliance with or violation of the National Ordinance on Registration and Finances of Political Parties is subject to penalty.
