Electoral Commission sets deadline for amended NZ First returns and detailed explanation
The Electoral Commission met this afternoon (8 Sep '08) and considered formal correspondence from the president of New Zealand First in respect of the party's annual donation returns for 2005, 2006, and 2007.
The commission is requiring New Zealand First to produce promised amended party donation returns for the three years and their accompanying auditor's reports no later than Tue, 30 Sep '08, along with a more detailed explanation of the circumstances leading to the need to file amended returns.
The commission is unable to release the correspondence or further options for action under consideration, nor comment further until, at earliest, the required information has been provided or the 30 Sep '08 deadline has passed.
