Election funding, expenditure and financial disclosure scheme
Substantial changes to the election funding, expenditure and financial disclosure scheme operating in the ACT are effective from 1 July 2012.
From 1 July 2012, the election funding, expenditure and financial disclosure scheme, as defined in the Electoral Act 1992, consists of four components:
- public funding of election campaign expenditure;
- limits on the amount of electoral expenditure that may be incurred;
- limits on the amount of gifts that may be received, that are used to incur electoral expenditure; and
- disclosure of the financial transactions of registered political parties, political party groupings, MLAs, associated entities, candidates, third party campaigners, broadcasters and publishers.
