Discussion paper

With deceptive advertising already affecting the Tasmanian political landscape, the case for truth in political advertising laws is strong. A recent publication in a Tasmanian newspaper has further highlighted the need to stamp out misleading political advertising. Almost nine in 10 Tasmanians say Tasmania should pass truth in political advertising laws.

This paper addresses the Tasmanian government’s objections to legislating truth in political advertising laws, as part of the review of the Electoral Act currently underway.
