Good, if you can’t follow the rules you deserve to be prosecuted:
The Electoral Commission has referred the following matter to the Police:
- ACT on Campus âNot your typical partyâ flyer, baseball cap and t-shirt.
It is the Electoral Commissionâs view that the publication of the ACT on Campus flyer, baseball cap and t-shirts constitutes a breach of sections 204F and 204H of the Electoral Act 1993 because the items are election advertisements that did not contain a valid promoter statement and were not authorised in writing by the ACT party secretary.
As this matter is now with the Police, the Electoral Commission will not be commenting further.
Now if the Police couldÂ progressÂ the log jam of complaintsÂ referredÂ to them I might have just a bit more confidence in ourÂ ElectoralÂ System, that repeat offenders and law breakers actually get prosecuted.
