South Belfast Councillor Kate Nicholl said now was the time for full transparency.
“The public’s confidence in local politics is at an all-time low, which is quite the feat, considering some of the scandals which have mired it previously. One of the major problems is people do not know who is funding our political parties and potentially influencing decision-making,” she said.
“Alliance voluntarily publishes our large donor information and we believe other parties should follow our example. Now, more than ever, is the time for full transparency – we once again have disturbing allegations of corruption but other parties continue to give excuses as to why they will not publish their information.
“It is imperative the Secretary of state removes the exemption immediately and donor information is published, so the public’s questions can be answered and confidence can be restored in our political system.”
