Parties get funds


A TOTAL of K820,000 was given to 10 political parties by the Integrity of Political Parties and Candidate Commission last Thursday.
The parties are New Generation, PNG People’s Democratic Party (PDM), Melanesia Liberal Party, Peoples National Congress Party, Peoples Party, Pangu, National Alliances, Stars Alliances and Peoples Progress Party received their funds from chairperson of the commission Dr Orovu Sepoe.
Sepoe said the funding they received was in accordance with the number of MPs (K10,000 for each MP) that had joined on March 1.
“Movement of MPs after the date does not attract funding to a party that the MP joined,” Sepoe said.
He said that out of 34 parties only 10 got funding.
