EC commences paying 2020 elections’ officials

The Electoral Commission has begun payments of individuals who were engaged in the 2020 elections exercise.

According to a memo issued by the election governing body, the payment is in batches because of the numbers involved therefore all the contracted workers will be paid soon.

“The payment is in batches because of the numbers involved. All officials should be rest assured that the commission will pay them,” the memo dated April 26 read in parts.

Some workers contracted by the Electoral Commission to work on the 2020 presidential and parliamentary election have been agitating over the delay in their payment.

Earlier, the EC assured its unpaid field operatives for the 2020 polls they would be paid by April 30, 2020.

While apologising for the delay in payment, the EC said it is working with the Ministry of Finance to make funds available for payment.
