Parties Get Meagre Donations From Supporters
Wednesday, 24 September 2014
Bulgaria's parties declared the meagre 192 000 levs in donations from supporters for the upcoming elections, reports Nova TV.
For comparison, for the European Elections the parties declared donations amounting to almost 1.7 Million levs.
According to the National Audit Office, which by law must be informed of all donations, the reason for the small donations is the fact that most of the parties are using their state subsidies for the campaigns and don't organise donation drives.
By law the parties must declare each donation before the Audit Office, but only six coalitions and eight parties, out of the 25 registered for the elections, are actually doing it.
