Australia ALP 'rush' through legislation to 'bias' the Qld election in their favour
Three out of four Australians hold a racial bias against indigenous people: New survey reveals shocking invisible barrier faced by Aboriginal community
Three out of four Australians hold a racial bias against indigenous Australians according to a new study from the Australian National University.No matter their age, gender, job, religion, education level or income - the majority of people on average held an unconscious negative view.
Nationals Senator Matt Canavan says the introduction of new election rules by the Palaszczuk government was an “indefensible” attempt to “distort the democratic decision making of Queenslanders”.
Under the new legislation a party candidate cannot spend over $57,000, an independent cannot spend over $87,000, parties can spend $92,000 per seat and unions or third parties can spend $87,000 per seat.
The ALP have given unions a combined $1.7 million spending budget per seat while limiting the spending of the LNP, Nationals and other groups with no union connections, to $149,000.
Biden: Trump may want to "steal" the presidential election
© JIM WATSON The designated US presidential candidate Joe Biden has warned that incumbent Donald Trump cannot accept a defeat in the November election. His biggest concern is that Trump wants to "steal" the election, the US Democrat says. US President-elect Joe Biden has warned that incumbent Donald Trump cannot accept defeat in the November election.
Mr Canavan said “it can only be described as a giant 'gerrymander' rort ... and it is the second time in a row this has happened”.
“Before the last election the then Queensland government rushed through legislation to re-impose compulsory preferential voting on the public”.
“They did so blatantly to bias the election towards themselves because they relied heavily on Green preferences to be re-elected”.
“There is no upper house in Queensland so the electoral laws being mucked around with here are being done so without any checks and balances and without any oversight by an elected government that has a conflict of interest in wanting to get re-elected”.
