‘Political funding reforms good’
PUTRAJAYA: The recently proposed recommendations on regulating political funding can be beneficial for all political parties, said Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Paul Low.
Low, who heads the National Consultative Committee on Political Financing which recently released recommendations on the regulation of political funding, also pointed out that the committee is non-partisan and has no political representatives.
However, Pandan MP Rafizi Ramli and Seremban MP Anthony Loke have said it is an attempt to legalise money politics in elections.
Low dismissed their claims, saying the recommendations are fair.
Meanwhile, DAP said the proposed reforms for political funding does not contribute to greater transparency on the income and expenditure of political parties.
