These matters have already been considered by the committee. The Electoral Legislation Amendment (Political Campaigners) Bill 2021 responds to recommendation No. 18 of the Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters from its Report on the conduct of the 2019 federal election and matters related thereto. The amendments will enhance public confidence in Australia's political processes by aligning transparency requirements for political actors who seek to influence the outcome of an election to more closely resemble those for political parties, candidates and members of the Australian parliament.
