Report: Political finance regulation at the May 2015 UK general election

About this report

On 7 May 2015, a UK Parliamentary general election (UKPGE) was held to elect 650 members to the United Kingdom Parliament. This report focuses on spending and donations reported by campaigners in relation to these elections.1

This is the Commission’s second report on the UKPGE held in 2015. We have a statutory duty to report on the administration of certain major electoral events, including UK Parliamentary general elections. We also have a duty to keep under review and report on the law relating to elections, including the registration of political parties and the regulation of their income and expenditure. This report forms part of our work under those duties.
