The general report of the Court of Auditors on the outcomes of the audit of the funding of 2019 early presidential election campaign financing points to a set of aggression.
These incorporated agreements settled between individuals and political parties that ran for election with foreign lobbying companies to exercise influence and mobilise support.
In its audit, the Court relied on records it had obtained and others published on the U.S Department of Justice’s website.
An investigation of the financial data reported to the Court of Auditors and the cross-checking it carried out on the and data accessible to it showed the absence of a declaration on the funds and the non-justification of their source.
Presidential nominees Mohamed Lotfi Mraïhi, Elyes Fakhfakh, Hamma Hammami and Abdelfatteh Mourou have not disclosed funds meriting 143,697 thousand dinars out of 1,516,525 thousand dinars of funding obtained between them.
These nominees have not given the equivalent in receipts of the amount of these funds, which is opposed to the provisions of Article 17 of Decision No. 2014-20 of August 8, 2014 of the ISIE, establishing the rules, procedures and methods of financing the electoral campaign.
