Second, lobbying in Singapore is restricted through the strict regulation of both political donations and election expenditure as well as limited campaigning time.
This is to avoid what has happened in mature democracies like Australia, where the media recently exposed apparent attempts by China to influence Australian politicians through political donations, or the United States, where cooperations and unions can influence the political scene through their massive donations, following the defeat of Citizens United vs Federal Elections Commission in the Supreme Court.
Which democratic country has the strictest laws concerning political lobbying? I was reading this article and I was wondering which country has the most strictest laws and regulations that prevent abuse from lobbying. I am thinking because Singapore is a very "imperfect" democracy - since it is essentially a one-party autocracy - it shouldn't count, so I was wondering which country had the strictest laws concerning political lobbying.
