Political parties publish more information about campaign finance than in the past but some important data is still missing

The results of the monitoring of electoral campaign to the European Parliament, performed by Transparency International Czech Republic, are not optimistic. Four parties out of ten do not have a transparent bank account. Some of the parties do not disclose information about the members of their electoral teams or media agencies they cooperate with. None of the monitored parties communicates the amount of money spent on advertisements or billboards. According to Admosphere, the amount of money spent on this campaign is up to 93 million CZK (3.4 million EUR). The situation will not improve without the law on political party financing.

Political party financing is unclear; TI will monitor the EU elections jointly with the public. Take photos of campaign billboards and monitor together with TI

Prague, 9th April – The results of the last year presidential and parliamentary campaign financing monitoring, done by Transparency International (TI) and the association Naši politici, are alarming. Four out of nine monitored parties did not have a transparent account during the parliamentary elections. It was often difficult to discover who the real donors and sponsors were even in the parties who did have transparent accounts. Moreover, at least 430 million CZK from party budgets passed through media advertising last year. Therefore TI will also monitor the upcoming election to the European Parliament with the help of a mobile and internet app ZmapujTo.cz (“Map it out”) which enables taking photos of electoral billboards. Now the public has the opportunity to get involved in the monitoring of electoral political campaigns. All the information is available at www.transparentnivolby.cz.
