AEC policy on party registration decisions
Updated: 23 December 2010
The AEC is required under Part XI of the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918 to publish its reasons for decision when it rejects:
- an application for registration of a political party,
- an application for a change of registered party name or abbreviation, or
- an application to enter a party abbreviation in the Register of Political Parties.
The AEC has determined that to comply with this requirement it will publish its reasons for these decisions on its website.
