Both sides stated their respective position on the issues raised.

Resolutions of the Commission

After deliberating on the complaint, the Commission came to the following conclusion:

  1. That there is no proof that the Party tampered with it constitution.
  2. As  it is obligated on all Political Parties to submit their audited accounts to the Commission in March of every year; hence the United Democratic Movement is expected to submit their audited finances to the Commission by the end of March 2013.

At the end of the meeting, the parties expressed their satisfaction on the resolutions by the Commission and promised to hold a reconciliatory meeting and report back to the Commission.
