The Ministry of Finance and Economic Management has recently completed a presentation on The Pre-election Economic and Fiscal Update (PEFU) to all Political Parties and Independent candidates.
The publishing of the PEFU and these presentations are aimed at providing candidates with an update of the Government’s financial position and the changes in the economic parameters since the publishing of the 2014/15 Budget Policy Statement and the 2013/14 Half Year Economic and Fiscal Update (published in December 2013).
MFEM envisages that these presentations will guide candidates in terms of presenting their policies.
MFEM has also offered to help Political Parties cost policy initiatives, and have kindly requested all Political Parties and Independents to submit policy proposals by the 13th of June 2014, in order for MFEM to cost these policies by the 20th June. Agreed policy costings and a reconciliation table will be published on the MFEM website on the 27th of June 2014 for the general public.
