Changes to political donations, overseas voting rules

From Morning Report, 7:40 am on 28 June 2022

Changes to the country's political donations regime are going full-steam ahead of next year's election.

New legislation will require parties to publish the identity of any donor who gives more than $5000 a year - the current threshold is $15,000.

Voting eligibility for people overseas will also be temporarily expanded for the 2023 election, in light of the travel difficulties due to Covid-19.
