Abstract
One of the proposed reforms by the Malinauskas Labor government in South Australia has largely passed ‘under the radar’. In a surprising pre-election announcement, Malinauskas announced that his government would seek to introduce and implement a ban on all political donations to registered political parties in the state. This is, potentially, an extraordinary development, and if legislated would be a world first. The reform is being considered and scrutinised by the Attorney General’s department as they consider the legal and constitutional implications of the proposed ban.
