2018 Wentworth by-election qualification checklist

The Qualification Checklist Relating to Section 44 of the Constitution (the checklist) forms part of the candidate nomination form. People seeking to nominate as a candidate may voluntarily complete the checklist to help demonstrate their eligibility to be elected to Parliament under section 44 of the Constitution. The AEC is required to include the checklist as part of the nominations process under the Electoral and Referendum Amendment (Eligibility) Regulations 2018.

Checklists received from candidates that have nominated to stand in the by-election are listed below. For each candidate the AEC has published:

  • whether or not the candidate submitted a checklist
  • the checklist (if the candidate consented for it to be published), and
  • any additional documentation provided (irrespective of whether or not the candidate has provided consent for their checklist to be published).
