No Money for Construction of EC Headquarters

This has been revealed by Finance Minister Matia Kasaija following concerns from Members of Parliament on the poor state of the commission’s offices.

Legislators on the Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee have expressed fear that the ware house structures which currently are occupied by the commission headquarters are prone to floods.

However Hon.Kasaija says while government is cognizant of that fact, the constrained resource envelop cannot permit them to support construction of the Electoral Commission headquarters.

However, the committee has given the minister three weeks to negotiate with the commission and come up with a way forward on the matter.
