DIP thus dismissed the explanation provided by the party about the reasons for its failure to provide the commission with the financial statement on time. On Tuesday afternoon, the New Left party confirmed that it was late in submitting its 2020 financial statement and explained that they missed the deadline due to shortcomings in the electronic system for data entry.
The New Left, which has one lawmaker, was the only parliamentary party to fail to submit its financial statement within the deadline.
The DIP commission recalls that more than 1,300 parties and independent lawmakers and councillors, subject to regular supervision, managed to submit their financial statement by that very same IT system in a timely fashion.
So the problems arose from the mistakes made by the persons authorised by the party to enter the data and not due to any glitches in the IT system, DIP said.
