Funding challenge

Nasik Swami
Wednesday, July 30, 2014

WHILE campaign funding could be an issue in months to come, some political parties are managing well with the finance they have at this stage.

National Federation Party leader Professor Biman Prasad said as far as the party was concerned, it continued to raise funds from individuals, supporters and candidates who were making personal monetary contributions.

Mr Prasad said they also had candidate levy, which was being used to produce campaign materials.

He said campaigning was expensive.

"I can say that election campaigning such as advertisements is not very cheap.

"It's very expensive just like the high cost of living; everything else in this country has gone up including the cost of advertising."
