The financial cost of electoral campaigns and terms in office in Mali
This study of the cost of politics in Mali analyses the expenditure of individuals running for political office, and the cost of maintaining that office.
The report finds that the cost of getting elected to parliament is 252% of the average annual salary of an MP. It highlights a number of consequences of this high cost, including women and youth being shut out of politics.
The report also contains a number of recommendations to ensure more inclusive access to politics in MP.
