Election Funding Payments: 2007 Federal Election

This table shows the election funding payments made to political parties and candidates following the 2007 federal election.

A candidate or Senate group needs four per cent of the primary vote to be eligible for election funding. The amount is calculated by multiplying the number of votes obtained by the current funding rate.

The funding rate for the 2007 election was 210.027 cents per House of Representatives and Senate vote. The rate is indexed every six months to increases in the Consumer Price Index.

Just over $49 million was distributed to seven parties and 15 independent candidates.
