SHP HAS NO FUNDS FOR POLLS

The Southern Highlands provincial administration has not allocated any funds for the general election because it does not have the money.
But it is relying on whatever funding the Electoral Commission will provide.
With three days left to polling, election steering committee chairman Dr Bravy Koensong said the committee which was supposed to support the electoral commission did not have the funds.
Koensong, who is also deputy administrator, said this was because the administration had not given funds to the committee.
As a result, the committee cannot hold meetings, pay allowances, fuel and stationaries.
"We have a problem as the provincial election council has not contributed funds as requested and budgeted for to help in the elections, so the committee has no money to run the elections," he said.
