Less than one week for political parties to register!

Deadline registration political parties

The Electoral Council calls on all political parties which have not yet
registered to participate in the upcoming Parliamentary elections to do so
as soon as possible as the deadline for application for registration of
political parties is Wednesday, May 28, 2014.

Any party that fails to apply for registration before or on May 28, 2014
and/or does not adhere to all requirements stipulated for registration of
political parties laid down in the National Ordinance on Registration and
Finances of Political Parties will be excluded from participation in the
upcoming elections.

mean that the party is registered by the Electoral Council. Subsequent to
the submission of the application, the application will be thoroughly
reviewed by the Electoral Council. Only after receiving a positive decision
on the application by the Electoral Council, the party can be considered
registered and may participate in the Parliamentary election to be held on
August 29, 2014.
