Guam - The Guam Election Commission held their first meeting with their new executive director this week. Maria Pangelinan says they are crunching the numbers for the agency's Fiscal Year 2012 budget.

Although she could not provide any specific amount, she says the budget includes the request for the funds needed for next year's primary election. Pangelinan says she got word from the Bureau of Budget Management and Research that the GEC has until April 27 to submit its budget request.

The GEC board meets again on May 19.
