But according to the President of Indsamlingsnævnet, Christian Lundblad, must have its permits in order.
- in order to assemble into a personal campaign, you must have permission from the Indsamlingsnævnet, while fundraising to political parties are exempt, says Christian Lundblad.
- Why are the rules so?
- the Law is made on the way, so we can ensure the publicity of the fundraising. When people give money, they need to know what the money goes to, say, the president of the Indsamlingsnævnet.
the Extra Leaf has, therefore, asked Laura Lindahl, whether she has reviewed her collection to the board. She has not inform her Extra Magazine.
If the collection was reported to Indsamlingsnævnet, it would also be publicly available information. You can risk a fine, if the board determines that you have not followed the rules.
Laura Lindahl points out that it is 'costly' to campaign. She would not disclose how much money she has collected so far.
- There are many who support the Liberal Alliance, so if there was any of them that would support with more than their voice, as an economic contribution, so they should have an option for it.
But should your party not be able to fund your election campaign?
- It is not a matter that my party should be able to fund my election campaign. This is a question that if my valgkamps budget could be even higher, would I be able to get out even more with my messages.
- Have you reviewed your collection to Indsamlingsnævnet?
- No, I have not.
- Why not?
- For I shall not.
- Why not?
- Because political parties are exempt Indsamlingsnævnets provisions.
- Yes, but not the fundraising for private election campaigns.
- As I have read the provisions, I shall not report it.
- I can just read to you from the board's website:
'F. eks. can a collection for the benefit of a named politician's election campaign after the board's view, it will not immediately be equated with a gathering for a political party.'
- Okay.... my interpretation of the rules is another. I am not a lawyer, so if there are attorneys that believe it should be interpreted differently, then they must indeed take hold of me. My own interpretation is that I is excluded.
- are you going to report your collection to Indsamlingsnævnet, after you have been made aware of it?
- that is, after a journalist at Ekstra Bladet has made me aware that after his interpretation of the rules, so should I?
In contrast to the Liberal Alliance, the Socialist people's Party reviewed 21 collections. Nanna Bonde (SF), also has made a personal fundraiser for her election campaign, told Ekstra Bladet, her partiorgan made her aware of the rules.
Therefore, one can also go into Indsamlingsnævnets website and see the accounts and information about the collection.
