On Friday 22 April 2022 candidates for the federal election were formally declared at public events held across Australia, in accordance with the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918 (Electoral Act).
Mr Robbie Beaton was among those candidates declared – as a candidate for the Liberal Party of Australia in the Division of Isaacs (VIC).
The AEC is aware of comments made in the media recently by Mr Beaton about his enrolled address.
Following Mr Beaton’s candidate nomination for the 2022 federal election we have reviewed the declarations made on Mr Beaton’s enrolment and nomination forms. There is concern as to whether the information provided by him regarding his residential address on these forms is false.
The AEC has referred this matter to the AFP for investigation.
Candidate nominations for the Division of Isaacs must remain as they were formally declared on 22 April 2022. Ballot papers have been printed and distributed across the country for early voting to begin on Monday and many postal voters have already received their postal voting packs.
