With regards to future financing, the PMS said there would be a Foreign Ministers meeting on Sunday which would look at the issue.

Asked if we were going to accept the Electoral Commission's recommendations, the PMS said we were going to consider them. The Electoral Administration Bill would shortly be introduced.
