The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) has revealed that it spent P2.8 million on the last 13 by-elections.

This is the amount the IEC spent on local government elections (polling districts) ever since the ease of COVID-19 restrictions.

IEC spokesperson Osupile Maroba told Mmegi in an interview that the cost of each polling district differs from others due to the number of polling stations since the number of polling stations determines the number of poll staff engaged. The 13 wards where by-elections were held are: Tamasane, Tumasera-Seleka, Khwee, Nkange North, Motokwe, Boseja South, Metsimotlhabe, Lentsweletau-Mmopane, Moshupa East, Lorolwane, Gamolopo, Ledumadumane East and Bophirima.
