The political parties met the First Vice Prime Minister, Clemente Engonga Nguema Onguena, to look at matters regarding financing and participation in the media.
Political parties must take part in the elections using their own funds, which will subsequently be paid off by the Government following publication of the definitive results.
Both the president of the Monitoring Commission and leaders of the legalised political parties, except the party Citizens for Innovation (CI), not present at the session, agreed on underlining the importance of this decision so that the elections take place in an atmosphere of freedom and transparency.
The president of the Monitoring Commission instructed the political parties to form a sub-commission led by the leader of the Liberal Democratic Convention, Alfonso Nsue Mokuy, and including a PDGE member, who will meet to coordinate this group charged with organising the participation of the parties through national media.
At the end of the session, the First Vice Prime Minister thanked all those taking part for their high turn-out, among them members of the Government belonging to the departments of National Security; National Defence; Justice, Worship and Penitentiary Institutions, and the Interior and Local Corporations.
