MVC’s urgent application to defend our party funding transparency laws will be heard in the Western Cape High Court on 10 May 2024. The respondents cited in the matter are the President, the Minister of Justice and Correctional Services, the Minister of Home Affairs, and the Acting Speaker of the National Assembly.

Our application asks the Court to make an immediate order to declare parts of the Electoral Matters Amendment Act, as they relate to the Political Party Funding Act (PPFA), specifically to the R100k disclosure threshold and the R15m donation limit, inconsistent with the Constitution and invalid. Further, that until Parliament passes a resolution on the matter, and the President makes a final determination on these limits, the disclosure threshold should be R100k, and the upper limit R15m.
