Kyrgyz CEC to check use of budget expenditures for elections
The Central Election Commission (CEC) members will check expenditure of budgetary funds allocated for elections, a member of Kyrgyzstan's CEC Almaz Asanaliev told KyrTag Thursday.
"CEC members will start checking expenditure of budgetary funds allocated for elections on Nov. 21 at all 58 constituencies," Asanaliev said.
According to Asanaliev, all constituencies must submit expenditure reports by Nov. 20.
"The auditors include members of the CEC, the special representative of CEC in an area, the representative of the Chamber and an employee of the State Tax Service. In case of discrepancy in the figures, authorities will begin investigation," Asanaliev said.
According to Asanaliev, 215 million soms was allocated for elections out of the public budget. Meanwhile, member of the CEC Gulnara Dzhurabayev said believes members of election commissions should be financially encouraged.
"The salary of Chairman and Secretary of command-execution device is 2,000 soms. It is very little for over 2-month of hard work. Other members do not receive payment for their work at all. I believe that we need to stimulate the members of election commissions materially," Dzhurabayev said.
Presidential elections in Kyrgyzstan were held on October 30. Officially, the Prime Minister Atambaev was declared as a winner of the election.
