Rules around electoral donations very clear - Geddis

From Morning Report, 7:36 am on 13 April 2021

The Māori Party is under police investigation for failing to declare more than $300,000 in donations - and could be staring at a hefty sanction.

The party's president Che Wilson says it was an honest mistake but that hasn't stopped the Electoral Commission asking police to probe three large donations received in the leadup to last year's election.

Andrew Geddis, a public law professor at the University of Otago, spoke to Corin Dann about what is at stake.
