Release the names of political party donors in Northern Ireland!
This petition had 160 supporters
Secretary of State James Brokenshire must bring forward legislation to allow the publication of donations and loans received by political parties in Northern Ireland as a matter of urgency.
The Secretary of State announced that he would do this back in July, and the Electoral Commission expected to be able to publish the first names on 23rd November2017.
That date has now passed with no sign of the legislation coming forward, and the Electoral Commission have expressed their disappointment at this.
The people of Northern Ireland have a right to know who funds their politicians, and there is growing concern about who may be pulling the strings behind the scenes.
In the interests of democracy, the Secretary of State must now bring forward the legislation to allay those fears.
