The Commission does not provide comment concerning any applications to register a political party until that application is advertised in the Government Gazette.

Any elector who believes that an application is not in accordance with the Electoral Act 1907 can submit a statement to the Electoral Commissioner within one month after the notice of that application has been published in the Government Gazette. The statement should set out the grounds for the elector’s beliefs with respect to the Electoral Act 1907, as well as their name, residential address, postal address and be signed by the elector. Objections received by the Electoral Commissioner are available for inspection at the office of the Western Australian Electoral Commission when they are received.

 

Notices

There are currently eleven proposed cancellations of party registration. These cancellations have been proposed because the political parties did not lodge an application for continued registration in accordance with the Electoral Act 1907.
