This earlier compliance report also stated that the reform did not address the general funding of political parties and that the authorities had drawn attention to certain particularities of Monegasque politics which weakened the influence of political parties. The latter reportedly had no significant permanent structures and had only scant funding needs apart from when campaigns were in progress."Source: GRECO, Recommendation #23​, adopted at its 78th Plenary Meeting, 4-8 December 2017
