STATE FUND­ING

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

The Po­lit­i­cal Par­ties Act es­tab­lished the Po­lit­i­cal Par­ties Fund, which is ad­min­is­tered by the Regis­trar of Po­lit­i­cal Par­ties. The fund should re­ceive not less than 0.3 per cent of na­tional gov­ern­ment rev­enue. In 2013 and 2014, only par­ties that gar­nered five per cent of to­tal votes cast in the elec­tion – ODM, TNA and URP – qual­i­fied for the fund. Small po­lit­i­cal par­ties and those in­tend­ing to form post-elec­tion coali­tions will not ben­e­fit from the fund.
