Labor is facing a budget deficit of about $900,000 after its primary vote in the 18 May federal election was lower than expected. Labor had anticipated a primary vote of 36 per cent, but it was about 33 per cent. As a result, Labor will receive $24.6m from taxpayers under public funding rules, which is around $2m lower than expected. The Liberal Party will receive around $27.8m and the Greens in turn will receive about $7.67m. Meanwhile, Labor’s financial documents show that the party spend $31.9m on its election campaign.
