In general, the issue of the relationship between economic power and political power has attracted the attention of many scholars of law and politics. The major concern is that political power can also be achieved by economic power and democracy falls to the hands of affiliates of wealth. The uncontrolled flow of money and financial resources into the political arena and electoral competitions can seriously endanger the key values ​​of democracy. One of the channels for the entry of these resources into the political scene is the donation of the wealthy to political parties, which also threatens the perceived influence of public influence on public decisions, and endangers the principle of equality of persons. In this article, a descriptive-analytical method was used to examine the financial safeguards of parties' financial interests. It was found that to achieve this goal, the limitation of donations to parities, election costs, disclosure and, finally, financial monitoring and reporting by parties is essential.
