Transparency Institute reiterates call for campaign financing legislation

A recent court ruling has pushed the T&T Transparency Institute to make another call for laws to govern political party funding and election campaign financing.

In that judgment, former Minister Jack Warner was ordered to repay monies that he said was given by a businessman to help a political party.

TTTI believes parties should be fined if they don’t provide audited financial reports with donors identified and once elected, it says politicians should submit regular interest and asset declarations.

It reiterates its call for the enactment and implementation of the necessary legislation before the 2020 General elections.
