Summary/Abstract: This text, in a wider methodological sense, aims to show how control of financing of political entities during the election campaigns is carried out, but also, on the other hand, to point out to all obstacles, problems and the legal position of the anti-Corruption agency, as the supervisor that performs this kind of control.The text is divided into two parts. in the first part of the text, we focus our attention on all current problems that directly and indirectly complicate the full control of the financing of political entities, such as the political influence and the way of election of members of the administrator which performs control, but also the legal framework within which the control process is carried out. in this part of the text, the author also presents important recommendations on how to make the control more efficient and how the institutional capacity of the anti-Corruption agency can be increased.The second part of the article deals with the analysis of concrete examples in practice, irregularities that can be perceived on the basis of these examples, which relate to the financing of political entities. The basic measuring instrument and indicator through which we determine the adequacy of control and any irregularities that can be observed is an analysis of the reports submitted by the political entities to the anti-Corruption agency.
