THE Turkish Government has given US$50000 (F$94,340) for the general election in September.

This was confirmed by Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum yesterday.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said the Turkish Government had requested for details of how funds would be transferred.

He also confirmed that a Papua New Guinea delegation was in the country for discussions with various government officials.

"They want to put in an MOU for the disbursement of the funds that they had pledged to give towards the Fijian Elections Office.

"The MOU is yet to be finalised, we understand they wish to finalise before they leave tomorrow (today)."

And with 50million Kina ($F40.36m), Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said the first trench of funding would go directly to the Elections Office while the second would be given next year.
