The Family Party appear to have broken the Electoral Finance Act.
on 7 January 2009 they disclosed that two donors had donated $36,000 and $39,775 – Elias Kanaris and Paul Adams.
The disclosure was meant to be made within 10 working days of the amount donated exceeding $20,000 over 12 months.
Kanaris should have been disclosed by 4 December 2008. And Adams by 24 October 2008.
They had better have a very good excuse for why they didn’t file on time. I suspect they will simply claim they were unaware of the new requirements.
The Party Secretary is Anne Williamson. Assuming she is also their finanical agent, she may be facing a fine.Tags: Electoral Finance Act, Family Party
