THE Bullet Train for Canberra Party has applied to register as a political party for October election, the ACT Electoral Commissioner, Mr Phil Green, said today.
“Two other applications to register a political party were also received just before the June 30 deadline. These applications are currently being processed, and further details will be made public as soon as possible,” Mr Green said.
It is now too late for any political parties not yet registered for the October election to submit an application for official registration to the ACT Electoral Commissioner.
“Members of the public are entitled to object to an application for party registration if they consider that the party is not eligible to be registered.”
Anyone wishing to object to the registration of the Bullet Train for Canberra Party may lodge a written objection with the Electoral Commissioner by July 20.
Copies of the application and the constitution of the party are available for public inspection at the office of the Commissioner between 9am and 5pm on business days.
