Bill introduced to keep Toobal off Party Funding Supervision Committee ({{commentsTotal}})

Five parliamentary groups in the Riigikogu presented a bill on Monday to amend the Political Parties Act. According to the proposed change, anyone sentenced by the courts couldn’t be appointed to the Party Funding Supervision Committee.

The introduction of the bill is a consequence of the Center Party’s decision to make its secretary general Priit Toobal the party’s representative on the Party Funding Supervision Committee. All parliamentary groups except that of the Center Party support the bill.

Toobal was found guilty both of unauthorized surveillance and of having falsified documents in his role as a public official in 2014. Reactions to his appointment to the committee ranged from disbelief to amusement and outrage.

The political party funding supervision committee consists of appointees of the Chancellor of Justice, the National Auditor, the National Electoral Committee, and one representative each of the political parties in the Riigikogu. The current committee’s term ends at the end of April this year.
