Election Commission presents 8-point plan


The Election Commission said a specific, interim plan of action should be implemented by a Cabinet representing all political parties in Parliament or a similar structure to resolve the economic crisis.

In a media release, the Commission said this is the time to work concertedly to rebuild the country.

Presenting an eight-point proposal to be implemented in a timely manner to overcome the present crisis, the Commission said a consensus needs to be reached to do away with adverse provisions in the Constitution.

It also pointed out that the privileges given to public representatives need to be limited and that the public service should be restructured.

The Commission suggested several amendments to the election law, before polls are called, such as putting restrictions on the exorbitant expenditure by political parties and election candidates on campaigns and strengthening youth and female representation.
