39. Are there limits on the amount a political party can spend?




"A party is entitled to spend up to 10,000,000 MMK (ten million kyat) per candidate. However, the total campaign expenses of a candidate (including support received by the political party who has nominated the candidate + candidate’s own funds + donations) cannot exceed 10,000,000 MMK (ten million kyat)."

"A party may spend 10,000,000 MMK (ten million kyat) for campaign expenditures per candidate that contests a seat in general elections or by-elections. Such campaign expenditures can be derived from money legally gained by respective candidates or from party funds legally obtained."
