Should you know who funds political parties? ConCourt to hear arguments

He said having equal access to accurate information regarding by whom a political party was funded‚ and thus to whom it was likely to owe political loyalty‚ was critical for all citizens to make equally informed political choices‚ particularly when they cast their votes.

However‚ the Minister of Justice is appealing the high court order.

The minister said MVC failed to join all the political parties in its high court application as these parties were likely to be affected by the order the organisation sought. The minister said MVC had also not joined the Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) in its high court application.

“For this reason‚ this Court should refuse to confirm the declaration of invalidity with costs‚” the minister’s advocates Thabani Masuku and Liziwe Dzai said in their written submissions.

The minister said the legislature did not intend to regulate the disclosure of public or private funding of political parties and independent candidates in terms of PAIA.

“Public funding of political parties is regulated in terms of the Public Funding Act. There is no equivalent legislation regulating private funding of political parties although Parliament is currently processing such legislation in terms of the Draft Political Party Finding Bill 2017.”
