It is precisely those political forces that, in the matter of transparency, instead, the macroscopic problems and, in some cases, have already been sentenced to indemnify the state (for example, the 49 million of Alloy) or in other cases to handle so opaque finances, political foundations and associations should take an example from the NGO to account in a transparent and effective way of public and private funds that they perceive”.
