Ever since MVC’s establishment in 2012, we have lead the call for political party funding transparency. The years of advocacy and litigation resulted in the Promotion of Access to Information Act being implemented on 1 April 2021. This has also lead to the development and implementation of the Political Party Funding Act on 1 April 2021.
The commencement of these two Acts signals a fundamental change in our political landscape. If properly implemented, it will enhance transparency, deter corruption, allow us to better hold political parties accountable and, ultimately, deepen democracy.
