Local Cabinet takes decision to control election expenses

The cabinet has approved a proposal tabled by the President to advise the legal draftsman to draft amendments to existing laws to control election expenses.

Approval was granted by the previous cabinet in 2017 to amend the existing ordinances in order to make provisions to minimize illegal activities during elections.

The parliamentary select committee appointed to identify reforms relating to the structure and rules of parliamentary elections and submit amendments has also reached agreement in consultation with the relevant parties.

Accordingly, the Cabinet of Ministers approved the proposal to draft proposed amendments relating to election expenses.
