Kassie Neou and letter

Dear Editor,

I was disappointed that the PPP did not publish my letter in full (PPP, V10/N17,

"Election funding causes discord at NEC"). The selected extracts do not

give the full story and were linked by the paper to other things. My concern, as

the full letter explains, is about how the NEC acquits itself.

My intention was never to challenge the Prime Minister, as the PPP article inferred.

In fact he and I share the same concerns, namely finding the ways and means for the

commune elections to take place and for all citizens to be able to exercise their

rights to register and vote.

Finally I do not recall suggesting that the UNDP "is not rising to the task"

- indeed given what I was saying to my NEC colleagues about the need for international

support, such a statement would be highly out of place! I applaud the efforts of

the UNDP and other donors who are trying their best.

- Kassie Neou, Vice Chairman, NEC
