BRC thanks National Government, ABG for referendum funding

Mauricio Claudio confirmed that the Bougainville Referendum Commission (BRC) has received further funds last week.

“In the last week the BRC received K10 million from the National Government in our account and a further K1.5 million has been made available by the ABG. These funds are just in time to support the BRC’s efforts to enrol all eligible Bougainvilleans to vote at the referendum.”

In 2019 the BRC has received K18.7 million from National Government and K2 million from ABG towards their revised K27.8 million referendum budget.
