2014 Variation Broadcasting Allocation Decision Released

29 August 2014 Variation Broadcasting Allocation Decision Released

29 August 2014 News items

The Electoral Commission has released a variation decision on the amount of time and money allocated to political parties for the broadcasting of election programmes for the 2014 General Election.

By noon on 26 August 2014, the Alliance, a party which received allocations of time and money in the original 6 June broadcasting allocation decision, had not submitted a party list for the General Election. As a result, the Alliance became ineligible for an allocation of time and money. This resulted in the $34,357 and I minute (closing address) previously allocated to the Alliance being available for reallocation.

In addition, the Expatriate Party of New Zealand and Truth, Freedom, Justice remain ineligible for an allocation of time as they were not registered by 14 August 2014 which means a further two minutes for closing addresses are available for reallocation.

The Commission’s decision is available online here [PDF 415.29KB]and is summarised below.
