“We are preparing for council election. You can see in the last appointment of permanent secretaries, somebody was moved to OGSIEC as the permanent secretary.  The board, when constituted, will have to prepare for the election.  OGSIEC will have to give three months’ notice to allow all political parties to prepare for the election,” he said.

According to him, the dwindling economy had been a major constraint for councils to do capital projects, as a large chunk of allocations was spent on recurrent expenditure.
