AEC releases WA Senate documents under FOI

January 18, 2014

Happy new year, and to celebrate, have some FOI documents.

The AEC released 106 pages of documents in response to my FOI request regarding the Western Australian Senate recount. Documents are here.

I may write some more analysis here when I get around to it.


And the winner is…

…Oakeshott, in a landslide.

64.14% first preference, 74.38% TCP.

Now for the people of Lyne to get used to having, you know, representation in Parliament.


Vaile’s gone

Looks like Lyne will be going to the polls again.

But will Labor run a candidate? Seeing how they won’t in Mayo, where Downer has a smaller margin than Vaile, it seems unlikely.

I hope they do run, if only to provide a choice other than the Greens. If they could somehow convince Jamie Harrison to run for the ALP they’d have a good chance of getting a swing towards them – not that Harrison would do that, of course.
