Government to clamp down on political advertising

The Government is planning a new law to clamp down on paid-for political advertising on social media. The development follows significant concerns about the misuse of social media in recent foreign elections. There have also been issues about material from anonymous or hidden accounts which has been blamed for swaying debate in some electoral contests abroad. Political advertisements which are paid for on social media will now be required to be clearly labelled under new laws planned by the Government.
