IRL raked in 1.6 million euros, of which 1.23 came directly from the state. The Center Party was next with slightly below 1.6 million, although its share of state aid was higher with 1.39 million and the party pulled in the highest amount, 50,000, in membership fees.

The Social Democrats earned 1.25 million euros last year, with slightly over 1 million coming from the state.
