Association of Public Sector General Suppliers says it will seek a legal interpretation on how the mounting pending bills. Which will be paid by the national government and county authorities; which will take power after the August 9 General Elections.
“The biggest worry is that most of the new governments are afraid of paying the old bills; when they come into office.
