Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

Yes, regularly

While a modicum of state financing exists in the form of a subvention to parliamentary parties and duty free access to election paraphernalia and vehicles, third (smaller) parties are excluded as these benefits are made available only to political parties with representation in the outgoing parliament.

Only for the political parties with the representation in the parliament. After 2015 elections, there are only two parties in the parliament.
