In the debate and conversations I've observed the most contentious point seems to be the funding of the parties by taxes. This debate is almost completely reactive, and for the most part, I believe, reflects a lack of understanding about how political systems work; why it is more advantageous to have equitable public funding of the process rather than vested-interest funding; that the proposal is itself designed as a transition mechanism. In short, I think that the communications and messaging around the proposed public funding for the parties should be prioritized and vigorous, otherwise we are looking at an issue that can cause more and more reactive debates that are going to tie up a lot of time and energy, mire down the process and could even derail it.
Thank you very much for your feedback Rita. I will be sure to pass this information on to our communication team!! We greatly appreciate your support!!!
