Rebekha Sharkie has introduced laws to slash the political donation disclosure threshold to $1000

Political donations of more than $1000 should be made public so Australians know if there are vested interests at play in parliament, a cross bench MP says.

Centre Alliance MP Rebekha Sharkie has introduced draft laws to dramatically slash the political donation disclosure threshold from $13,800 to $1000.

"The public should know whether our representative democracy is representative of the ... people, or if it's represented and representing vested interests," she told federal parliament on Monday.
