Each candidate can only spend 40 million kroons in the first round and another 10 million kroons if he advances to the second round. Why is it so? Political scientist Pyotr Sokol will explain this to you. Watch the video!
Candidates can also support so-called third registrants in the elections, who can spend 800,000 in the first round and possibly another 200,000 in the second round on their own campaign.
This rule applies because we have a prevailing idea that campaigns will be more transparent and fair if they are regulated and restricted. In addition, the Council of Europe has repeatedly proposed a similar scheme. This has already led to a number of absurdities in the parliamentary elections, and in this year’s presidential campaign we see how various restrictive rules can be circumvented and how this regulation ultimately helps those who are not afraid to ignore the laws.
