Subsidies to Parties

Parties receive party subsidy - the provisions are found in the Party Act. Party subsidy is granted by the Government in accordance with the number of seats in Parliament. The use of the subsidy is supervised by the National Audit Office since 2016 (previously by the Ministry of Justice). For the purpose of overseeing the activities, accountancy and use of funds of the parties, every party has to submit documents on the closing of the accounts to the National Audit Office within three months of the confirmation of the final accounts.
