This act contains no provisions covering campaign contributions and no other act authorises public funds for campaigns or political parties. The Parliamentary Act does prohibit “corrupt practices, bribery at elections, treating and exercise of undue influence with regard to voters’ preferences”...

Anonymous donations must not exceed $1,500 [I$ 1,000], or $42,225 [I$ 29,000] (between two elections) if it is donated via the Electoral Commission. In the latter case, even the receiving party will not be informed of the identity of the donor.

Art 270I.2 (as amended), "If an anonymous party donation exceeding $1,500 is received by a party secretary, the party secretary must, within 20 working days of receipt of the donation, pay to the Electoral Commission the amount of the donation, or its value, less $1,500." (Electoral Act, No. 87, 1993)
"A donation protected from disclosure is a mechanism for any person who wants to make a donation of more than $1,500 to a registered political party and does not want their identity to be disclosed to either the public or to the party receiving the donation. The Electoral Commission puts your donation together with others and passes it to the party at regular intervals without identifying the value of individual donations, or the number or names of donors involved. A form is provided in the Downloads box on the right hand side of this page to faciliate the making of a donation protected from disclosure. Limits Please note that: the maximum amount that an individual or body can donate to any one political party through this process is $42,225 between two successive elections (but you may donate to more than one party in this way, and up to a $42,225 limit for each) no political party may receive more than $281,500 from donations protected from disclosure between two successive elections. If a donation or contribution takes an individual or party over their limit then the Electoral Commission will return the excess. Confidentiality It is an offence under the Electoral Act 1993 to tell a party or anyone else that you intend to, or have made, a donation or to provide such information that may allow them to deduce that you intend to, or have made, a donation. Offence provisions also apply to people permitted to know this information. The only people permitted to know this information are: a member or employee or other person engaged by the Electoral Commission any officer, employee, relative, adviser, or agent of the donor or contributor any other person to whom the identifying details must be supplied to enable the donation to be made (eg, an employee of a bank who processes a cheque by which the donation is made) any person to whom the identifying details must be supplied to comply with one or more of the Inland Revenue Acts (within the meaning of section 3(1) of the Tax Administration Act 1994) the Auditor-General any other person entitled to the information in question in accordance with any search warrant, summons, or any process under rules of Court, or in the course of any proceedings. The details of those who make a donation protected from disclosure, including all contributions to a donation, cannot be supplied under the Official Information Act 1982." (Elections New Zealand.

Booysen & Masterson, 2009. 414 “Private funding of political parties is a contentious issue in South African politics, with no applicable legislation existing that regulates the conduct of political parties in relation to private donations and funding. The only mention of private funding of political parties in the relevant legislation simply states that this practice is permitted in South Africa. However, no conditions are attached to the receipt of such contributions. Political parties are also permitted to obtain funds from their members, as well as businesses and civil society groups” (Booysen, S & Masterson, G (2009) South Africa, in Denis Kadima and Susan Booysen (eds) Compendium of Elections in Southern Africa 1989-2009: 20 Years of Multiparty Democracy, EISA, Johannesburg)

Ban on contributions of cash (currency) which in the aggregate exceed $100 [I$ 100] from one person. If a committee receives a cash contribution exceeding $100 [I$ 100], it must promptly return the excess amount to the contributor. If an anonymous cash contribution over $50 [I$ 50] is received, the amount in excess of $50 [I$ 50] must be used for some purpose unrelated to federal elections.
