UP submits all financials to the Electoral Council

GREAT BAY – The United People’s (UP) party submitted yesterday its full slate of candidate financials related to September 26 elections to the Electoral Council.  Treasurer Earl Wyatt submitted the financials to the Electoral Council at 2 p.m.

The Electoral Council recently appealed to 118 out of 125 candidates (seven candidates had already done so) who had participated in the elections to submit their donation registration list before the October 26 deadline.

Candidates who don’t comply accordingly are subject to sanctions for non-compliance of the National Ordinance, which includes the publication of their names in all mass media.

Elected Members to Parliament would also not be able to take the oath of office to assume their position in parliament if they fail to comply with the law.

The UP informed voters during the campaign that the party would submit its candidate financials to the Electoral Council as a team rather than as individuals.
