FMF NEWSLETTER 13 June 2018    
EDITORIAL  

Dear friend of the FMF

In this week’s feature article, Martin van Staden explains that, because of discretionary powers, the Political Party Funding Bill could have seriously negative effects on the Rule of Law in South Africa, and our democracy in the long run. For fear of upsetting the regulators who may support another party, funders of opposition parties may withdraw their funding, inhibiting the ability of those parties to form a robust bulwark to whichever party may find itself in power. 

FEATURE article  

Violations of the Rule of Law undermine the Political Party Funding Bill – MARTIN VAN STADEN

 

The Political Party Funding Bill appears to be well on its way to becoming law in South Africa. Its intention to shed light on the identity of those who fund political parties is noble, and arguably essential in a free and just society. But our legislators’ irresponsibility in their law-making stands to undermine these good intentions and lead to severe consequences for our democracy.
