Independent MP Jami-Lee Ross is forcing MPs to vote this evening on whether to ban overseas political donations in local government elections.
He is putting up three proposed amendments to the Local Electoral Matters Bill, which is up for debate tonight.
They include capping overseas donations at $1500, a full legislative ban, or a restriction, so that only New Zealanders who are enrolled to vote can make donations.
Mr Ross said there were zero restrictions on candidates receiving overseas donations in local government elections.
Mr Ross said political parties representing a majority in parliament wanted to ban overseas donations.
"New Zealanders do not want our electoral system to be compromised by overseas donations and Kiwis don't want our democracy to be hijacked by the threat of foreign influence.
