Allowance to political parties

See field: municipal

An annual allowance distributed in proportion to the percentage of valid votes obtained in the last general election may be given to authorized parties conforming to section 82 of the Election Act. This allowance is revised annually.

In addition, within 10 days of the order to hold general elections, we will pay an additional allowance to political parties. This additional allowance will be calculated in the manner prescribed in the first paragraph of section 82 and distributed in the same way as the regular allowance.
