Opposition hopeful on secret donation ban

"Important to reduce risk of corruption"
4:30 min

The red-green opposition parties in Sweden, that is the Social Democrats, Green Party and Left Party, have a new plan to stop anonymous donations to political parties in Sweden. They say legislation proposed by the government does not go far enough, and so they want to use a technical solution to stop secret donations, without actually banning them.

They want any parties that accept anonymous donations to be automatically disqualified from state political party funding, something they hope would put parties off. Peter Eriksson is a Green Party MP and chair of the parliament's constitution committee, and explains his proposals to Radio Sweden. Reporter: Kris Boswell.
