End dirty political donations

Our democracy should work for everyone, not just those who can afford to buy a seat at the table.


End dirty political donations

It’s time to end the corrupting influence of lobbyists and big business. Support the Greens’ push to end dirty political donations.

The Greens plan to clean up politics:

  • Ban political donations from mining, property development, tobacco, alcohol and gambling industries
  • Cap all other donations and make sure every donation over $1000 is disclosed publicly, in real time
  • Ban MPs and senior staff from accepting lobbying jobs after they retire and require the publication of the subject of all meetings with lobbyists
  • Root out corruption by establishing a federal anti-corruption commission that can undertake investigations of politicians

Right now, politics in Canberra seems to be completely separate from what really matters in our day-to-day lives. But it shouldn’t be this way. All of us should have our voice heard and have the values of our community represented in parliament.

Australian politics needs a major shake-up. For too long, our parliament has played out behind closed mahogany doors, shutting out communities and making decisions about people, without those people.

Our democracy should be the best tool we have to care for people, plan for the future and protect the environment,but it has to work for all of us. Right now, corporate influence in politics is getting in the way of progress on every thing from tackling climate change to housing affordability.

Unlike the major parties, the Greens refuse to take donations from corporations trying to buy influence. That means we are entirely focused on outcomes that are good for our community, not outcomes that suit big donors. We can’t be bought and we won’t sell out. We have a plan to return integrity and transparency to the political system and hold politicians and major parties to account.

Now is the time for us to work together and build a democracy that works for everyone.
