Description

What is the public problem that the commitment will address? The Political Parties Act (Wet op de politieke partijen, Wpp, in dutch) will further increase transparency about the financing of political parties and political campaigns.

What is the commitment? The proposal for the Wpp will be presented to the House of Representatives.

How will the commitment contribute to solving the public problem? If the parliament adopts the proposal for the Wpp, transparency about the funding of national parties will be increased. Binding rules on (digital) political campaigns and the funding of decentralized political parties will be introduced.

Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values? With this commitment, the functioning of political parties is being made more transparent for citizens. This contributes to increasing accountability of the politicalparties and to increasing confidence in the government and strengthens democracy.
