According to ABC news, The ALP has announced its candidates for the seats of Brindabella and Molonglo for the upcoming ACT election. Labor will field 19 candidates in total, two more than there are seats available.
A union industrial officer, several public servants and small business owners are among those pre-selected for the October election.
Sadly, at the momenbt i can’t find a list of these people online.
Mr Stanhope has stated that there is “no conspiracy” in fielding extra candidates. Frankly, I didn’t think there was.
He also stated that it all is about “maximising Labor’s vote and (that) he has no reason to believe any of his team plans to stand down during the next term.”
