Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: The Election Supervisory Board (Bawaslu) will cooperate with the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) and the Financial Transaction Reports and Analysis Center (PPATK)  to monitor campaign funds in regional elections.

"We will ask PPATK to monitor suspicious transactions," said Bawaslu member Nelson Simanjuntak in Jakarta on Friday (10/28).

"Hopefully, all candidates follow the regulations," he continued.

Nelson mentioned all candidates have to prepare special bank accounts. Therefore, Bawaslu can easily monitor their campaign funds.

"We have limited resources. We also do not have much time," he stated.
