Finance Minister Johnny Koanapo has revealed that the budget of the provincial elections next year is VT66 million. Minister Koanapo made this statement when he tabled the Appropriation Bill in parliament yesterday.

The provinces of TAFEA, SHEFA, PENAMA and MALAMPA will go to poll early next year. All the provincial government councils had met to discuss their 2021 annual budget and operational plans last week.

Their provincial mandate will end early next year; however, the dates of the provincial elections are yet to be announced by the authorities responsible.

SANMA and TORBA will have their election on different dates.

The SANMA provincial election took place in 2019 and TORBA in 2017.
