ELECTORAL COMMISSION INCOMPETENCE

Posted in city of fremantle, elections, Uncategorized, voting by freoview on October 5, 2017

 

The missing ballot papers saga for the Fremantle local government election appears to be more widespread, with voters in the inner city and South Fremantle also only receiving the Ward ballot paper, but not the one to elect the next Mayor of Fremantle.

I hear it is not contained to Fremantle only, but is also happening at other councils.

We already read the story of Kalgoorlie ballot papers having been sent to Nedland, 600 km away, so this is a true shambles.

Only a few years ago there was a big investigation into how the WA Electoral Commission managed to lose hundreds of votes during the federal election, so heads need to roll now as this is not acceptable.

The outcome of the mayoral election might well be challenged by either or both of the candidates. It could even delay the election.

And let’s just remind ourselves that the tax payers will have to pay for the incompetence as new ballot papers will have to be sent out.

It is unbelievable!

If you want to participate in the Federal Election, today is the very last day to enrol and put yourself on the register. You can do it on-line till  8 pm, so I encourage anyone who has just turned 18 or moved house recently to do it!

There is a high percentage of people under 30 who are not on the electoral list and we need to hear the voice of the young people as well.

This is your opportunity to give the boot to those politicians who have failed and put new people in parliament and the senate. VOTE please!

ENROL TODAY!

DISCRIMINATION AT CHAMBER OF COMMERCE ELECTION FORUM

Posted in city of fremantle, election, voting by freoview on September 30, 2015

Well, well, well. This is surprising and very disappointing and I wonder what criteria were followed by the Fremantle Chamber of Commerce to have  and Election Forum about the Fremantle economy that only includes the candidates for City Ward and Hilton Ward.

That is extremely discriminatory and very offensive to all the other candidates in the other Wards who were not invited.  What was the selection of candidates based on I wonder. Blue eyes? Blond hair? Knowing someone who knows someone? It’s disgraceful as it makes the candidates in the other Wards look third rate and second class who have no idea about the economy.

This is from the Fremantle Network Facebook page:

The Fremantle Chamber of Commerce presents the 2015 Local Government Election Forum – Building The Fremantle Economy.

Local Government candidates for the City and Hilton wards will be stating their case to members of the business community about how their candidacy and platform will contribute to making Fremantle a better place to do business.
