PARTIES STARTED DIALOGUE WITH POLITICAL PARTIES COMMISSION
Party administrators of the 12 registered political parties have started dialogue with the Political Parties Commission on complying with requirements under the Political Parties Integrity Act.
Speaking to members of the local media this week, Political Parties Commission Registrar Calvin Ziru said the fact that parties have registered and are able to sit and discuss government formation is an interesting development.
Mr Ziru also explained the Act introduces a new scheme, which the Commission and political parties explore daily.
Mr Ziru also said the Commission is holding a workshop with party executives next week.
“You would agree that the Act in itself introduces a very new scheme and that the scheme in itself is being explored on a day-to-day basis by the Commission as well as the political parties. Next week we are planning and possibly with the Electoral Commission, a workshop with the executives whereby we will go through all provisions or requirements under the Act in terms of financial returns and other compliance that parties need to adhere to, but parties are already entering into discussions around forming government and that’s a very interesting sort of development that we are able to observe.”
