Parliament debates on party financing

Temporary Parliament buildingWILLEMSTAD – Members of Parliament will debate this coming Wednesday a bill proposal on political party financing. There is already a law regarding this issue, but the political party headed by Alex Rosaria MP, PAIS, wants to propose stricter rules.

PAIS wants to use the report of the Transparency International (TI) as the basis for these new rules. In their report, the TI indicates that the influence of party financers on political parties is significant. According to PAIS, voters should trust that the decisions made by political parties when in Parliament or in the Government was not ‘bought’ by party financiers.
