Analysis of Financial Trends of Regulated Federal Political Entities, 2000–2014
This report looks back on the financial activities of regulated federal political entities over 15 years, spanning various legislative reforms and five general elections. It consolidates financial data and documents trends related to public and private funding as well as expenses.
The period from 2000 to 2014 is of particular interest because it captures the years before and after the introduction of contribution restrictions in 2004 and of quarterly allowances to registered political parties (commonly known as the per-vote subsidy).
This retrospective serves to deepen the reader’s understanding of the impacts of past changes to the political financing regime, and to inform future policy decisions and legislative reviews.
Moving forward, a similar report will be issued for every electoral cycle.
