RIGA - The Corruption Prevention Bureau has conducted 63 inquiries into suspected violations in political parties' campaigns ahead of the 14th Saeima elections, most of which ended in warning and reprimands, the bureau's representative Karina Polanska said at a press conference on Monday.
In eight cases, administrative proceedings were initiated.
In total, KNAB has received over 300 complaints about political parties and association's election campaigns. 60 reports are still being investigated.
In general, the pre-election period can currently be described as peaceful as political parties and associations, with few exceptions, generally follow the relevant rules and regulations, explained Polanska.
Parties' election campaign costs are monitored and so far none of the parties has exceeded the maximum amount of election campaign costs.
