Expenses reported to CEC

According to the Regulation on Initiative Group Financing, IGs must submit, along with financial statements, lists of both financial donations and donations in goods, objects, work and services during the electoral period (indicating the name and type of the goods, objects, work or services, including the period, the market value of the goods donated, the number and date of the bailment agreement/donor). (See unreported estimated expenses of IGs by category in Annex 3, Charts 1–7). Promo-LEX EOM notes that the legal provisions of the Contraventional Code regarding financial reporting during the election campaign do not apply to initiative groups, so sanctions are not imposed for improper reporting by initiative groups, resulting into incomplete reporting by those concerned. Promo-LEX EOM recommends amending Articles 48 and 481 of the Contraventional Code “Violations of laws on the management of political party financing and electoral funds” so that they apply to initiative groups as well. c. Expenses incurred by political parties for activities with electoral overtones identified by Promo-LEX observers during signature collection
