Electoral Legislation Amendment (Party Registration Integrity) Bill 2021
[by video link] If this bill passes, small parties with small budgets would have to get rid of any materials that they've already produced with their current names or logos and pay to replace them all. They'd have to pay to replace their websites and they'd have to build a whole new brand in less than six months. Will you make any compensation to those parties who incurred approved political expenditure under the old rules and who will now have that expenditure rendered redundant, once Labor rolls over like a puppy dog and backs your bill?
