In that regard, the PPRC hereby makes the following clarifications:-That the Commission has not ban Party activities and do not hold such pretensions, that the clear intention of its said Press Statements, is to ADMONISH AND CALL on Political Parties, to pay strict heed to the law and the COVID-19 Regulations, in the conduct of their activities and as a Regulatory Body will continue to stand on that stead.

The PPRC maintained that it is for the leadership of each Party to design their programmes in a manner consistent with the law and the said Regulations.
