The pursuit of transparency
Since the Right to Information Act came into effect, other legislation in Queensland has been amended to ensure greater transparency and accountability.
One example of this has been amendments to the Electoral Act (1992) and Local Government Electoral Act (2011). These changes led to the creation of the Electronic Disclosure System (EDS).
The EDS allows for fast reporting of political donations in Queensland and was used for the first time during the 2017 State Election.
