Labor will push to legislate spending caps and truth in political advertising, as well as promote adherence to the one-vote one-value principle in an ambitious suite of electoral reforms, Don Farrell said.

The special minister of state said that Labor will be “putting the case” to an inquiry into the 2022 election “as to why those things should be done”, signalling their likely inclusion in a government bill to be presented ahead of the next election.

Kylea Tink, independent MP for North Sydney, said she supports “greater transparency” on money’s influence in politics, describing spending caps as “a good idea”.

“The tricky part in this will be coming to what that number needs to look like.”

Running as an independent is “one of the hardest things I’ve ever done”, she said, and “without the backing of a party the need to be able to invest to build name recognition and the agenda I was running on was absolutely essential”.

She said the bigger issue was real-time disclosure, and truth in political advertising adding that was “definitely something we should pursue”.
