So here’s the deal. Every election, both Territory or Federal, we ask readers to post questions they’d like to see candidates answer.
We choose the ten we think are the most interesting.
The candidates are then sent them and can reply, or not. If they do reply we publish their responses in full which they won’t get out of any other media.
The process tends to favour candidates capable of independent thought. This is, in our view, a good thing(TM).
So in the comments below post the questions you’d like to see put to the candidates and we’ll get the ball rolling.
UPDATE: At noon today we find out who the candidates are, so this is your last chance to get in some questions!
Further update: The AEC has now advised us thusly:
As the draws for the positions on the ballot papers have only just taken place in the Eastern ststes and we have to wait for the western state, I am informed that the list of all candidates woill be on the AEC’s website at aec.gov.au from tomorrow Saturday after 09:00AM.
So we’ll be finalising questions tomorrow, keep them coming.
