Minister for Inter-Government Relations, Pila Niningi, confirmed this in Parliament today.
The Minister responsible clarified that K13m was released earlier, and K20m only recently.
“The funds have been released already. A total of K33 million was budgeted. I urge MPs to please chip in and assist because K33 million may not be enough.”
Minister Niningi received backlash from Namatanai MP Walter Schnaubelt, who demanded to know what the actual budget is to fund an LLG election, in order for MPs to know how much they can budget for this exercise.
