Another new political party has been registered for the 18 October 2008 ACT Legislative Assembly election, the ACT Electoral Commissioner, Phil Green, said today.

“The Pangallo Independents Party has been entered on the register of political parties in the ACT,” Mr Green said.

Their registration takes effect from today, 15 July 2008.

“Registered political parties are able to list their party name on ballot papers and receive public funding of election expenses,” Mr Green said. 

It is now too late for any political parties not yet registered for the October ACT election to apply.  The deadline to submit an application for official registration for the 2008 election was 30 June 2008.
