Elections ACT has made a move on the shambolic Canberra Liberals for their failures to disclose donations on time:
An infringement notice has been issued to the Canberra Liberals for the party’s late submission of electoral financial disclosure returns, the ACT Electoral Commissioner, Phillip Green, said today.
“Since the start of this financial year, the Canberra Liberals have submitted 15 gift returns outside of the 30 day disclosure period allowed by the Electoral Act,” Mr Green said. “The late submission of each return carries a penalty of $1,100. The total amount owing is $16,500.”
The party’s reporting agent now has 28 days in which to pay the monetary penalties set out in the notice, to appeal the notice or to apply for an extension of time to finalise payment.
For the party that wants everyone else banged up for life between this and a certain MLA’s parking they don’t seem to have much respect for their own law abiding.
