Politicians and political parties need money to fund campaigns. Regulating how politicians and political parties raise funds and how they spend those funds is important because If you leave it up to the politician and political parties, anything goes. In this episode, we take a closer look at our Electoral Act and we noticed that it has been diluted, watered down over the years. Our legislators appear to be introducing more grey areas into every new version of the act and these grey areas seem to help cover up information about source of funds, recipients of funds, amounts contributed, frequency of contributions and requirements to disclose information.
