Foreign Minister Julie Bishop's staff contacted me late today - the AusAid political party donation scheme has been cancelled!

Earlier today we reported on the Australian Political Parties for Democracy Program.

Late today Foreign Minister Julie Bishop's staff contacted me with some faith-restoring fantastic news.

The program has been cancelled.

Here's the statement.


Background on the cancelled program…


·       The Australian Government established the Political Parties for Democracy Program in 2005-06 to support Australian political parties undertake international activities to promote democracy.


·       The Australian Labor Party and the Liberal Party of Australia have participated since the program was established; the Australian Greens joined in 2011.


·       In 2009, the Rudd Labor Government transferred the program from the Department of Finance to AusAID.


·       This program has been cancelled by the Abbott Government, as part of the recent reprioritisation of the aid budget.


Well done Julie Bishop, Tony Abbott and team.
