  • I’m concerned this is going ahead when a formal complaint to the Federal Appeals Panel about the way the RO interpreted the rules at the last all-member elections has still not been considered. At that election the RO disqualified validly cast votes. Whatever the reasons that is an extraordinary power to take on and one which is neither explict nor implied in the election rules.

    The orginal complaint was made during the Presidential elections and the last update was that it was ‘passed to the RO and Chief Exec for their responses on Feb 28th.

    Obviously Covid has interfered with this, and I totally accepted that this would interrupt how this was dealt with. But the party has decided on some ‘return to normality’ by having a leadership election and at least one complaint to the Federal Appeals Panel has been considered whilst Covid lockdown was in place.
