Warren Snowdon declared winner in Lingiari

p1919warrensnowdonWarren Snowdon (pictured) says the increased vote from the bush was “an absolute repudiation of failed LNP and CLP policies.


“In particular, it is a rejection of their policies on CDP, housing, roads, the Voice to Parliament and much more.”


Mr Snowdon was today declared the wining candidate in Lingiari which he has represented in Federal Parliament for most of the past three decades.


“Even though the Federal Government cut the Australian Electoral Commission, and thereby made enrolment much harder, the remote voice was still loud and clear about what is needed for people in the bush,” he said in a statement today.


“This outcome does not lessen the obligation on the new Federal Government to ensure proper funding for the Australian Electoral Commission to ensure they can do the enrolment and education that is necessary to ensure all are on the roll and can vote.”

  1. Price to get plumb job in Canberra

    I have heard a rumour that Jacinta Price is to be given a job under the new Federal Indigenous Minister.
    If true, she will no doubt be given a plum Federal office job to “represent this region” as a reward for her dismal public and social media performance.
    Again, if this is true, this is a real failure of the process, and rewarding a failed candidate who is not liked nor respected.

    [ED – The Minister’s media adviser, when asked to respond, said: “Regarding the claims about Jacinta Price, we have no comment.”]

    Please Wazza. A bit of introspection.
    You didn’t win, your opponents lost.
