Marion Lê Social Justice Party applies to register as a political party for 2012 ACT election
“The Marion Lê Social Justice Party has submitted an application to register as a political party in the ACT,” the ACT Electoral Commissioner, Phil Green said today.
“The Marion Lê Social Justice Party submitted its application on Friday 29 June 2012, just before the party registration deadline of 30 June 2012,” Mr Green said.
Parties wishing to register for ACT elections must submit a list of at least 100 members who are electors and a copy of the party’s constitution to the Electoral Commissioner. Elections ACT has confirmed that the Marion Lê Social Justice Party satisfies this membership requirement.
“Members of the public are entitled to object to an application for party registration if they consider that the party is not eligible to be registered,” Mr Green said.
Anyone wishing to object to the registration of the Marion Lê Social Justice Party may lodge a written objection with the Electoral Commissioner by 31 July 2012.
A copy of the application and the party’s constitution are available for public inspection at the office of the Commissioner between 9.00 am and 5.00 pm on business days.
It is now too late for any political parties not yet registered for the October ACT Legislative Assembly election to submit an application for official registration to the ACT Electoral Commissioner. To be registered for the 2012 election, applications had to be submitted before 1 July 2012.
