The Canberra Liberals have been accused of avoiding public scrutiny during the election campaign by skipping out on at least seven multi-candidate forums in the ACT.
But a senior Liberals campaign spokeswoman rejected the suggestion by Greens Senate candidate Simon Sheikh that the party was hiding its candidates.
Mr Sheikh’s Liberal rival in the senate race, Zed Seselja, was forced to withdraw from a Tuesday morning forum hosted by the ACT Council of Social Service following the birth of his fifth child on Monday night.
In response Zed has retweeted this:
@2CC@zedseselja gutter politics. More important for Zed to spend some time with his newborn. Can't criticise him for that #shameful
