Electoral Transparency in W.A.

Monday 19th March / presented by Rewi Lyall

When a Chinese businessman made a $40,000 donation to the Queensland Liberal-National Party we found out about the donation almost immediately, which made the PM's decision to have dinner with him four days later all the more interesting.Queensland's near real-time disclosure laws had its first big win.

It appears the only thing holding WA back from implementing near real-time political donation disclosure laws is the cost.

Rewi Lyall spoke with Electoral Affairs Minister Bill Johnston and Community Development and Justice Committee Chair Peter Katsambanis about our election processes and electoral transparency.

P.S. check out the Minister's intimation that it could be the beginning of the end for plastic bunting at polling places in WA!
