Which of the political parties in Parliament supported the passage of the Electoral Finance Act, and which of the parties have yet to breach the Act?
Now those are very good questions, and you'd expect that over the two questions, all the parties in question would be by-and-large the same. Not so!
So, in the wake of this update from the NZ Herald, here are the answers.
The parties who supported the passage of the Electoral Finance Act were, in no particular order Labour, the Greens, New Zealand First, the Progressive (I'm using the singular, because there's only one of him!) and United Future, although the last-named voted against the EFA at the Third Reading, knowing that it would pass irrespective of Peter Dunne's grandstanding.
The parties who have yet to breach the EFA are National, the Maori Party and Act, although Heather Roy was warned about a newsletter she produces.
So here's another question. Shouldn't the parties that drafted on of the most insidious pieces of legislation ever seen in New Zealand be able to comply with it?
