Largest Democracy and Campaign Funds

Here’s an interesting campaign finance perspective from India.

Campaign finance rules in India are not clear. Lok Sabha candidates are only accountable for how they spend money, not for who gives it. There are expenditure limits and the Election Commission reviews expenditure accounts. Sources of funding that candidates and parties rely upon are unclear, though the Central Information Commission now requires parties to disclose those sources under the Right to Information Act, if asked.
