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 ‘Not your typical party’ flyer, baseball cap and t-shirt.
It is the Electoral Commission’s 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 could progress the log jam of complaints referred to them I might have just a bit more confidence in our Electoral System, that repeat offenders and law breakers actually get prosecuted.
