'There is not one law that explicitly prohibits the use of state resources to favour one party or candidate. Instead, a patchwork of laws cover different potential avenues for utilising state resources for this purpose. For example, during election periods, public broadcasters are subject to provisions of the Broadcasting Services Act. Some aspects of the Public Service Act 1999 also address this issue, such as ensuring a distinction between agency and ministerial websites.'
