Message from the Chief Commissioner:

To those with outstanding IEC fines,

It has come to my attention that there are a number of individuals who had received fines from the Independent Electoral Commission not only last year, but previous years as well. I have been told that some of these fines are still outstanding. Unfortunately, there was not a rigorous system in place to track these fines and to confirm that payments have been made in full (or not). This results in it being very difficult for me to enforce these fines with confidence that I am not unduly charging individuals and preventing them from running for a position. In the spirit of having the broadest participation possible, and avoiding unfair disclusion from the election based on poorly recorded payments, I have chosen to waive all outstanding fines owed to the Independent Electoral Commission.

Vanna Lodders

Chief Commissioner • Independent Electoral Commission
