“The Steering Committee on National Elections was not created overnight,” he says.
“It was set up and utilised by past governments to provide advice to the Electoral Commission on the smooth running of the elections.
“The Committee liaises with the Electoral Commission and brings to the attention of the government issues they face so these can be dealt with in an expedited manner.
“These are mainly funding and administrative issues.”
Lupari says as Chief Secretary, he chairs the Steering Committee.
