Last year Labor introduced a Bill to make it mandatory for all MPs, candidates and parties to disclose donations they receive and put caps on how much parties and candidates spend on their political campaigns. Just prior to the election being called, the Gutwein Liberal Government committed to improving Tasmania’s weak electoral laws.
We must continue to hold them to account. Tasmania will continue to have the weakest political donation laws in the country, unless we send the government a clear message. It’s time to reform these laws so future elections are a battle of ideas and not bank balances
Sign this petition to send a clear message to the government: It’s simply not right that millions of dollars of donations to political parties and individuals are kept secret from Tasmanians.
