Media Release

Victorian Greens acting leader Sam Hibbins says Victoria needs to toughen up donation laws to restore public confidence in political processes.

"Victoria's weak political donation laws are an invitation to those wanting to buy influence, including criminals,” Mr Hibbins said.

"Both Liberal and Labor are missing in action when it comes to political donations reform.

“We still don’t know who bankrolled the 2014 election and won’t until the AEC reports are released in February 2016.

In Victoria only donations above the federal $12,400 threshold need to be disclosed, and there is no cap.

“This current system is failing. It’s time to get serious about cleaning up politics and restoring trust.
