ACT says Labour's attempt to change the rules around political party donations will have the opposite effect.

Justice Minister Kiri Allan's Electoral Amendment Bill will lower the limit for public disclosure of donors from $15,000 to $5,000 by the 2023 election.

But, ACT Party Leader David Seymour says no one gets any undue influence over any New Zealand party for $15,000.

He says they're reducing the amount of money to screw the scrum politically, and bring the law in before the next election.
