ISLAMABAD, May 13 (APP): The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Monday asked the winning candidates of national and provincial assemblies  to submit their returns of election expenses with returning officers till May 21. “Section 42(3A) of the Representation of the People Act, 1976, read  with Section 50 and Rule 30 of the Representation of the People (Conduct  of Election) Rule, 1977, requires every candidate returned to the National Assembly and provincial assemblies to submit to the returning officer concerned, a return of election expenses within 10 days from the poll of an election”, said the ECP in a statement here. 

The ECP said,”Under the law “election expenses” means any expenditure  incurred before, during and after an election or payment made, whether by way of gift, loan, advance, deposit or otherwise, for the arrangements, conduct or benefit of, or in connection with, or incidental to, the election of a candidate including the expenditure on account of issuing circulars or publications, aims or objects, but does not include the security deposit required to be made, under section 13 of the Representation of the People Act, 1976.
“The return should be submitted to the returning officer on Forum No. XVII prescribed for this purpose, alongwith an affidavit in the prescribed form (Form-XIX) duty sworn by the returned candidate. The forms prescribed for the return of election expenses are available with the returning officers. Typed or hand-written forms can also be used.
“The return in the prescribed form should contain a statement of all payments made by the returned candidate together with all bills and receipts, a statement of all disputed claims, a statement of all unpaid claims, if any, and a statement of all moneys, securities or equivalent of money received from or spent by any person for the benefit of the candidate specifying the name of every such person.
“The election expenses of a contesting candidate for election to a seat in the National Assembly shall not exceed Rs 1.5 million and and to a seat in the provincial assembly shall not exceed Rs 1 million.
“All vouchers should accompany the account of election expenses, duly arranged according to the date of payment and serially numbered and such serial numbers should be entered in the appropriate column of the relevant account.
“It shall not be necessary, while rendering account to the returning officer, to give particulars of the payees in regard to items of expenditure for which receipts are not required to be obtained under section 49(5) of the Act.
