    This application is brought in terms of Section 172(2) of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, Act No 108 of 1996 (“the Constitution”). The Applicant seeks a declaration that information about the private funding of political parties is reasonably required for the effective exercise of the right to vote in Section 19(3)(a) of the Bill of Rights. Furthermore it seeks a declaration that the Promotion of Access to Information Act, 2 of 2000 (“PAIA”) is inconsistent with the Constitution and invalid, insofar as it does not allow for the continuous and systematic recordal and disclosure of private funding information of political parties.
