The AEC has authorised the first payment to political parties and candidates for votes received at the 2010 federal election. Payments have been made to 10 parties and 17 independent candidates.
This first round of payments is based on the progressive vote count as at 10 September 2010. The AEC has paid up to 99% of the funding entitlements calculated at that date.
Funding Entitlements are calculated using an indexed sum per first preference vote. At the 2010 each first preference vote was worth $2.31.
In order to be entitled to election funding a candidate must obtain at least 4% of the formal first preference vote.
(Note: Looks like the LNP total has been split between Liberal and National parties.)
