EC to monitor election campaign expenses: Shakir


Acting Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Justice Shakirullah Jan has said that elements involved in rigging and violating law during the by-polls would be brought to the book.
He was talking to media persons upon his arrival at Multan to review the arrangements for the by-polls in National Assembly constituency NA-151 which fell vacant after former prime minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani was declared disqualified in the contempt of court case.
Justice Shakirullah Jan said that candidates contesting the polls could only spend Rs1.5 million which would also include the money spent by supporters for election campaign of the candidate.
He said that election campaign expenses would be closely monitored and no one would be allowed to exceed the permitted limit.
The acting CEC said that election commission is independent and it is responsibility of government to provide funds wherever needed.
