Publicly Funded Elections

Publicly Funded Elections

If we want the political parties to be answerable to the people then it must be funded by the people and not by big company donations. The reality is that big donors are likely to get favours, as is currently happening with sweetheart deals being given to contractors. Donations over 500 euros should be banned. Funding for the parties should instead come from the government and be proportional to either the votes they got in the last election or the number of small donations they receive.
