The ACT's electoral boundaries will remain unchanged for the October 2004 ACT Legislative Assembly election, the chairperson of the ACT Electoral Commission, Mr Graham Glenn said today.

The Augmented ACT Electoral Commission today announced that it accepted the proposed redistribution of the ACT Legislative Assembly electoral boundaries published on 11 July 2003 by the Redistribution Committee.

Six objections to the Committee's proposal were not upheld by the Augmented Commission.

The current electorates are as follows:

BRINDABELLA, a five member electorate comprising the district of Tuggeranong (excluding the suburb of Hume), the Woden Valley suburbs of Chifley, Pearce and Torrens and the districts of Booth, Coree, Cotter River, Paddys River, Rendezvous Creek, Tennent and Mount Clear;
