Problem

Unjust electoral campaigns

Nature:

The cost of publicity used in electoral campaigns may make contesting an election impossible for individuals or parties with only moderate means. Party finance may be provided by wealthy individuals or corporations with a vested interest against other contenders. Access to media may be unequally distributed. Political opportunism and even sabotage may be used against opponents. Electoral campaigns may mislead the public as to the true intentions or degree of integrity of the parties or individuals concerned.
