Political party office bearers to be banned from lobbying

31 May 2018

The Marshall Government will introduce legislation to strengthen South Australia’s lobbying laws, by prohibiting office bearers of registered political parties and associated entities from engaging in lobbying.

The legislation will prohibit office bearers of registered political parties and entities for the entire period the office bearer holds the relevant office, and also extends for 12 months after they no longer hold that role.

“The Marshall Government is delivering on its election commitments, and this legislation will be introduced into the Parliament to strengthen the laws governing lobbying activity,” said Deputy Premier Vickie Chapman.
