woolybanana Posted December 14, 2016 Share Posted December 14, 2016 I do understand that it means a 'share' of something or an undertaking, but how does this apply in politics?One of the Presdiential candidates, Mr. Peillon, a member of the European parliament and the Socialist party was ticked off and an attempt made to get him disqualified because he had not paid his party subs or his 'quote-part'.Does it mean he has to compulsorily contribute to some sort of fund? This is worrying as the money is after all taxpayers' money and should not be used to maintain political parties, surely?I am aware that they are given subsidies from the public purse which I have always objected to, but is the quote-part over and above this? Sounds like a rip off of public funds if it is. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
