Electoral Council calls on political parties to assist candidates
PHILIPSBURG:--- The Electoral Council would like to remind the 93 candidates who contested the 2018 parliamentary elections that, in accordance with the National Ordinance on Registration and Finances of Political Parties, they are required to record all donations received, be it in cash, by check or in kind. These records must be submitted to the Electoral Council ultimately on Monday, March 26, 2018.
Hurricane Irma has left the Electoral Council without its office; therefore, all candidates are invited to submit the donations registration to the representative of the Electoral Council in conference room #4 at the new Government Building on the flowing dates:
- March 20 and 21 from 1:30pm-5:30pm
- March 22 and 23 from 9:00am-1:00pm
- March 26 from 9:00am to 6:00pm
Candidates and political parties are also informed that- due to the damage to the office - the Electoral Council will not be able to assist candidates with the completion of their donation registration. Candidates experiencing difficulties with entering the information in the online donation registration are advised to seek assistance from their party. The Electoral Council is calling on all party boards to monitor donations received by their candidates and to assist them with the accurate registration of donations.
