P 20, 'campaign financing of individual candidates for election is out of the scope of the LPP and not regulated at all. The different electoral laws applicable to parliamentary and local elections... are completely silent on this matter. The lack of regulation and control of election campaign funding at national and local level concerns both independent candidates and individual party candidates, who are not ? except for one single criminal provision37 ? explicitly addressed by the provisions of the LPP... new transparency regulations for parliamentary, presidential and local election campaigns need to be compatible with the existing rules of the LPP on permitted and prohibited funding sources (including a ban on anonymous donations), donation ceilings, accounting and reporting obligations.' [footnote 37 shows that the exception relates to partisan candidates receiving foreign donations]
