CAPE TOWN Courtland Sutton Jersey , Sept. 27 (Xinhua) -- South Africa's Western Cape High Court ruled on Wednesday that political parties must disclose their sources of private funding so as to ensure transparency and accountability.

Judge Yasmin Shenaz Meer ordered Parliament to amend the Promotion of Access to Information Act (PAIA), which he said is inconsistent with the Constitution and invalid insofar as it does not allow for disclosure of private funding information.

Meer gave Parliament 18 months to rectify the "inconsistencies" in the act.

Information about private funding is "reasonably required" for the effective exercise of the right to vote and to make political choices by the Constitution, the judge said.

The ruling also applies to independent candidates.

Non-profit organization My Vote Counts submitted the application to have PAIA amended, amid growing reliance by political parties on private donations.

There have been concerns that the secrecy that clouds political party financing could damage democratic processes and lead to a manipulation of public policy positions in favor of certain private funders.

Parliament set up a multiparty special committee in July to look the issue. It has set itself a November deadline to formalize a final bill.

Currently South Africa's political parties are not required to declare sources of their funds or how they use their money.

South Africa's ruling African National Congress (ANC) has voiced its support for the regulation of private financing of political parties.

The party said political financing must be transparent in a way that will promote and support democracy.

The 25th anniversary APEC Economic Leaders' Meeting will take place in Danang very soon, on November 10 and 11.

We greatly value the APEC forum for the ample opportunities it affords all participants to engage in discussions and coordinate positions on a variety of economic, social, environmental, and cultural issues. Our countries strive to cooperate based on the principles of consensus and voluntary participation, mutual respect and willingness to compromise, regardless of the political situation. This is what APEC’s unique spirit of partnership is all about.

As a major Eurasian power with vast Far Eastern territories that boast significant potential, Russia has a stake in the successful future of the Asia-Pacific region, and in promoting sustainable and comprehensive growth throughout its entire territory. We believe that effective economic integration based on the principles of openness, mutual benefit and the universal rules of the World Trade Organisation is the primary means of achieving this goal.

We support the idea of forming an Asia-Pacific free trade area. We believe this is in our practical interest and represents an opportunity to strengthen our positions in the rapidly growing APR markets. I want to note that over the past five years, the share of APEC economies in Russia's foreign trade has increased from 23 to 31 percent, and from 17 to 24 percent in exports. And we have no intention of stopping there.

Of course, the large-scale project to create the APEC free trade area should be carried out with due account of the experience gained from implementing key integration formats in the Asia-Pacific region and Eurasia, including the Eurasian Economic Union, in which Russia cooperates with Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. Our union has been developing dynamically, and we are eager to build relations with all countries and associations that are interested in doing so. Vietnam, the host of this year’s Forum, was the first state to sign a free trade agreement with the EAEU. As a result, our trade grew significantly and became more diversified. Talks on a trade and economic cooperation agreement with China concluded a short while ago. Talks with Singapore have begun, and we are working on the possibility of signing a free trade agreement with ASEAN.

On a related note, I would like to mention our idea to create the Greater Eurasian Partnership. We suggested forming it on the basis of the Eurasian Economic Union and China’s Belt and Road initiative. To reiterate, this is a flexible modern project open to other participants.

Comprehensive development of infrastructure, including transport, telecommunications and energy, will serve as the basis for effective integration. Today Russia is actively modernising its sea and air ports in the Russian Far East, developing transcontinental rail routes, and building new gas and oil pipelines. We are committed to implementing bilateral and multilateral infrastructure projects which will link our economies and markets. Among other projects, I am referring to the Energy Super Ring that unites Russia, China, Japan, and the Republic of Korea, and the Sakhalin-Hokkaido transport link.

We pay special attention to integrating Russia’s Siberian and Far Eastern territories into the network of APR economic ties. These efforts include a whole range of measures to enhance the investment appeal of our regions, and to integrate Russian enterprises into international production chains.

For Russia, the development of our Far East is a national priority for the 21st century. We are talking about creating territories of advanced economic growth in that region, pursuing large. http://www.wholesalenhlcheapjerseys.com/   Wholesale Jerseys Online   Wholesale Jerseys China   Wholesale Jerseys   Wholesale Throwback Jerseys   Wholesale Throwback Jerseys   Wholesale Jerseys   Wholesale MLB Baseball Jerseys   Cheap Jerseys China   Wholesale Authentic Basketball Jerseys
