JCE’s Rosario: case closed

Central Electoral Board (JCE) administrative chamber president Roberto Rosario said that the case is closed in regards to the discussion of the budget allotment to the JCE for 2008. The outspoken judge has been critical that the Executive Branch only allotted RD$3 billion of the RD$7 billion requested by the JCE for the 2008 National Budget. JCE’s judges had complained that this amount would not be enough to complete a variety of outstanding projects along with the staging of the 2008 presidential election. Rosario said that he has said what he has to say on the matter. Rosario said that at the moment the JCE is deciding which projects would be suspended due to lack of funding.
