Abstract

This article compares some key aspects of political finance regulation in Australia and New Zealand. It centres on public money and electioneering expenditure. These are treated in three sections: expenditure limits; incumbency benefits, such as government advertising and parliamentary entitlements; and direct public funding of electioneering. A comparison paper by Joo-Cheong Tham explores private money in politics, in particular donations and their disclosure.
