The entire Alice Springs water control district – an area of 8200 square kilometres around the town – should remain off limits to fracking. This will be the Town Council's submission on fracking “no go zones”.  Meanwhile, Cr Jacinta Price has returned to council, after her failed bid to enter federal politics, but did not attend last night's meeting. KIERAN FINNANE reports.

"Jacinta Price is so very much disliked by a large proportion of Aboriginal people in the electorate," and while his coconut meme was headline material for the Murdoch press, it remained silent on Price's online "accusing Muslims about their private racial accords," writes Greens candidate George Hanna.

Tina MacFarlane, the 2016 CLP candidate for Lingiari and a white pastoralist, performed much better in the remote area voting than her successor in the current election, Jacinta Price, whose campaigning relied heavily on her Aboriginality. By ERWIN CHLANDA.

It seems certain that the out-of-touch Country Liberals, commonly know as CLP, have failed in their bid to stop Warren Snowdon from starting his fourth decade as the Federal Member for the vast Territory seat, albeit with a reduced majority. COMMENT by ERWIN CHLANDA.

The complaints by the former councillor and Country Liberals candidate Jacinta Price and her parents were all dismissed, found to be variously frivolous, vexatious, lacking in substance, and misleading. Councillors Cocking and Satour have called for public apologies. KIERAN FINNANE reports.

CLP candidate for Lingiari Jacinta Price is misleading her Facebook followers about three Code of Conduct complaints against members of the Alice Springs Town Council. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.

Local historian and long-time political observer Alex Nelson says the CLP "always emphasised that it has its own identity, a Territory Party, and was not beholden to any organisation outside the Territory.” Meanwhile raised voter enrolments in Alice Springs may impact the outcome in Lingiari, and both Warren Snowdon and Jacinta Price – who apparently aspires to be Central Australia's answer to Donald Trump – may drive fracking foes to vote for 1 Territory.
