“We are happy to report that all the 48 political parties have received the funds for the last financial year. Unfortunately, some have not been able to utilize the funds due to compliance issues which raises concerns to our Office with the Auditors through financial statements. As officials of political parties we do request that you prepare accurate Financial Statements and acknowledge receipt because they form the basis of the audits” said Registrar of Political Parties.

Registrar of Political Parties informed the officials that the Office had requested for more allocation of the funds from the current percentage from the National government so that Parties would run appropriate activities more effectively and urged them to lobby for the push since they are the lawmakers and are the advantage point of making such requests.
