The second round table of the government and opposition representatives will be partly open to the public, after which the participants will talk according to the Chatham House rule.

As announced earlier, the topic of the second round table will be the financing of election campaigns, and Transparency Serbia has issued recommendations on the topic, which they will present to the participants, according to the announced agenda of the event.

Proposals include amending the Law on Financing Political Activities, the Law on the Anti-Corruption Agency in the part related to the separation of public and political functions, as well as amendments to other related regulations concerning prosecution of criminal offenses related to illegal campaign financing.

Transparency Serbia proposes that these changes be worked on by three special task groups, whose expanded composition would include representatives from political parties and the Anti-Corruption Agency.
