The Party Funding Act (2018) became effective from 1 April 2021, meaning that parties and donors must submit their funding data to the IEC for the quarter April to June. The IEC needs to release their first quarterly report on party funding before the end of September, and may do it possibly as early as end August.
In preparation for the release of the first report, Sanef and partners requested the IEC to host a training session on the party funding system and reporting, to help journalists to fully understand how the online funding data submission system works, and what kind of data and information will be released by the IEC.
The IEC shared the following materials with the journalists who attended the session:
-IEC Briefing on political party funding – OPFS Training – Feb2021
– Overview of the party funding act – Political Party Funding Act 6 of 2018 George
– The political party online finding system – Political Party Funding Act_Comprehensive_Represented Parties (00000004)
