'Party funding bill should look at lobbying on behalf of political parties'
The National Assembly has adopted the Promotion of Access to Information Amendment Bill (PAIA) which compels political parties and independent candidates to disclose any donation over the R100,000 threshold.
The bill will now go to the National Council of Provinces for concurrence before being signed into law by the president.
