Ban foreign donations in Australian politics!
It’s time Australians took charge of our democracy by ending foreign influence and interference.
For too long, foreign funds have had undue influence over our political parties, third parties and associated entities.
In the last few years, millions of dollars in foreign donations have flooded our political system. While some estimates exist, no one knows exactly how much foreign interests are influencing our political process.
As we have seen overseas, where the potential for foreign interference exists, the democratic process is undermined.
According to the Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (IDEA), 114 countries ban donations from foreign interests – but Australia is not one of them.
Australians need to trust that politicians and activist groups have Australian – not foreign – interests at heart.
