Political Party Funding Bill

The Ad Hoc Committee on the Funding of Political Parties held its public hearings on Wednesday,

An ad hoc committee of the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) held its public hearings on Wednesday, to determine whether the bill adopted by the National Assembly in March should be amended before becoming law.

Chairperson of the Ad Hoc Committee on the Funding of Political Parties, Dikgang Stock spoke to Gushwell Brooks, standing in for Karima Brown, to share an update.

In total we had about 11 submissions and then out of the 11, 8 indicated they would be available for oral submissions.

The hearings were concluded today, it was just a day because most of these public submissions were also submitted in the National Assembly.

They advanced certain proposals in regards to the bill, some organisations feel the R 100 000 minimum disclosure for the donations is quite a substantial amount of money. Others feel R 15 million maximum is too much and should be reduced.

Dikgang Stock, Chairperson of the Ad Hoc Committee on the Funding of Political Parties

My Vote Counts is one of the organisations that want the R100 000 disclosure reduced.

For My Vote Counts we would like to see that reduced to at least R10 000. The other concern is that the cap for an annual donation from any individual company is way too high.

Janine Ogle, National Coordinator at My Vote Counts.
