Transparency in political donations and truth in political advertising

post-image

Politicians would have to declare political donations over $1000 in real time as part of a sweeping package of integrity measures Special Minister of State Don Farrell hopes to introduce by mid-2023.

Labor also wants to introduce “truth in political advertising” laws. The suite of measures are in addition to Labor’s plans to create a federal integrity commission.

The truth in political advertising would apply “across the board” and take in online and potentially social media, Farrell said.

“Media is so diverse now that you’ve really got to look broader than just say a newspaper ad .... he said.
