Presidential campaign budget cut by UAH 17 million

The Central Election Commission of Ukraine decided to reduce spending on the 2009 presidential elections by UAH 17.26 million (1 USD – 7.98 UAH) due to smaller than predicted number of presidential candidates.

This decision was passed at the CEC meeting on Thursday. Earlier the Central Election Commission predicted that up to 30 candidates would take part in the January 17 elections. In reality, there will be 18 candidates.

CEC Deputy Chair Zhanna Usenko-Chorna says costs on payment of mass media services were cut by UAH 6.78 million, on the production of information posters for the candidates by UAH 4.586 million, on the production of election papers by UAH 5.759 million, and compensations for transport charges over the campaign period by UAH 221,000.
