Andrew Doyle did not hand out how-to-vote cards for Eli Melky

Councillor Eli Melky, via an Alice Springs firm of solicitors, has told the Alice Springs News Online that Framptons First National principal Andrew Doyle did not hand out how to vote cards for Cr Melky during last year’s town council elections.


We regret the error and apologise to Cr Melky.


We made the statement in a report headed “Frampton New Homes: the dream breaker” which was accompanied by the photograph shown here, picturing Mr Doyle on the left and Cr Melky on the right, outside the council chambers polling booth on March 24, 2012.

    Looks like a “how to vote card” and smells like a “how to vote card” but definitely wasn’t “handed out” – sensitive stuff indeed – when “sensitivities” are in public focus (again) LOL!

    Yes the use of a solicitor is heavy handed in the extreme, given the previous litigation around Framptons it also seems rather insensitive.

    And for this he had to use a solicitor? Why didn’t he just air his grievance here like everyone else?
