CANDIDATES AGREEMENT BROKEN ON NEXT DAY
The agreement forged yesterday, in seeming good faith, has been broken already – on the very next day.
This is the letter from the Returning Officer. It seems that on the very next day some candidates or third party breached the agreement – read between the lines. Note the following “You are reminded that obstructing voters or the voting process is deemed an offence”. Seems someone was interfering with the voting process…
Read for yourself:
TO ALL CANDIDATES & THIRD PARTIES
Please be advised that the following must be acted on by 9.00pm tonight.
All HTV/Election Material will be removed from Early Voting Centres in the Redlands.
All A-frames from Early Voting Centres will be removed.
As from 9.00pm tonight, candidate and third parties are to abide by the regulations stipulated in the Local Government Act 2011 including the 6m rule. You are reminded that obstructing voters or the voting process is deemed an offence under the Act therefore any complaints received from the public or other candidates and third parties forthwith will result in Police intervention.
All complaints are to be emailed to email@example.com. Do not impede the Returning Officer or the ECQ Redlands staff from carrying out the election process by complaints or the like.
As you may have gathered from this email, the Agreement reached last night has been breached many times today and so the Returning Officer, who warned all present last night, has been forced to take these measures.
Please respect my staff from this point forth.
Regards & extremely disappointed,
