The Socialist Equality Party (SEP) is broadening its campaign against the bipartisan, anti-democratic electoral laws passed in August, requiring all non-parliamentary parties to treble their membership from 500 to 1,500 by December 2.
In defiance of a general media blackout, the Sydney-based Skid Row Radio interviewed SEP (Australia) assistant national secretary Max Boddy last week about the party’s campaign.
Boddy explained to radio presenter John August that the laws were introduced under conditions where increasing numbers of people were rejecting the Liberal-National Coalition and the Labor Party. In the 2019 federal election, 25 percent of voters gave their first preference vote to other parties. You can hear more from Skid Row presenter John August here: https://www.mixcloud.com/Johnorg/.
