ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the Electoral Finance Act (EFA) of New Zealand. The law bans groups outside Parliament, or the third parties, from spending more than $120,000 on an election year. It informs about the violation of EFA done by the New Zealand Labour Party by unlawfully spending $824,000 on the election campaign. While EFA was intended to be a weapon to use against the Government's wealthy opponents, it disabled Labour's own members who offended the law.
