Can we rely on By-election results being correct?
On Sunday 22July 2018 on SkyNews, doubts were cast whether we can trust the results of the looming five By-elections.
“Our Electoral Rolls lack integrity, thus enabling Vote Frauds,” said Lex Stewart, President of Vote Australia on the Outsiders program, where Rowan Dean asked questions about a list of 16 Electoral fraud cases in Australia, while Ross Cameron provided horrific information about Vote Frauds in USA.
“It is not just me who is concerned. Reports by the Australian National Audit office state that the Electoral Rolls are in a shambles.”
“Official advice to me recently is that the Electoral Roll contains at least 248,000 incorrect enrolments, many of which have been deliberately falsified.”
Salim Mehajer, Deputy Mayor in Auburn, was sent to jail a month ago for deliberately adding fraudulent names to the Electoral Roll.
Noreen Hay in Wollongong is another example of many that Vote Australia could provide.
“Also Australia is one of the few countries in the world that lacks a requirement on voters to identify themselves when they go to Polling places to vote,” said Mr Stewart.
“Voter ID is required in most countries. Kenya and Iraq introduced it last year.”
Using Vote Frauds, marginal seats can be won by candidates who are not the ones for whom the majority of voters truly voted for.
“Our voting systems are simply not capable of delivering true Democracy,” said Mr Stewart.
“The government needs urgently to consider amending the Commonwealth Electoral Act to curb Vote Frauds.”
Submissions called to investigate the unlawful removal of Senator Rod Culleton from the senate earlier this year.
What really happened? Why did the Attorney General Liberal George Brandis, intentionally mislead the senate about Culleton and how did the Senate President Stephen Parry(former Port Arthur undertaker) remove Culleton without a motion of the senate? Section 47 of the Commonwealth Constitution of Australia says only the senate can rule on the eligibility of a senator.
Brandis is hightailing it to London as the new High Commissioner. He will no doubt be called to give evidence. He has a problem.
‘On 6 December 2017, the Senate resolved that the following matter be referred to the Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters for inquiry and report by 6 February 2018:
The implications of recent decisions by the Court of Disputed Returns concerning section 44 of the Constitution on questions referred by the Parliament under section 376 of the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918, with particular reference to:
(a) the decisions in connection with the disqualification of former Senators Bob Day and Rodney Culleton;
(b) a regime for disclosing information relating to aspects other than section 44(i), for which the Parliament has already provided;
(c) the form such a process might take and how it could be implemented; and
(d) any related matters.’
