NT to become just one Federal seat of Parliament

 

 

In the absence of a successful appeal the House of Representatives NT seats of Lingiari and Solomon are going to be combined because of a drop in population. ERWIN CHLANDA reports. PHOTOS: Warren Snowdon (left) and Luke Gosling (right).

Warren Snowdon declared winner in Lingiari

He says his increased bush vote was a "repudiation of failed LNP and CLP policies".

CLP could have won with a better candidate: Hanna

"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.

Price bombs out in the bush

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. Now she's going back to council, the ABC reports.

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.

Anti-fracking Greens: Are jobs for the dole schemes legal?

A big “no” to fracking tops the list of priorities for the Greens candidate in Lingiari, George Hanna <strong>(pictured)</strong>. He’s even putting anti-fracking candidate Hamish MacFarlane, an independent who is close to 1 Territory, in second place on his how to vote card. This is ahead of Labor’s Warren Snowdon who is giving the Greens his number two slot. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.

Back to the future with Warren Snowdon

If the best time for seeing the Member for Lingiari Warren Snowdon in Alice Springs is in election campaigns, that's perhaps because he is "never at home": Apart from duties in Canberra, he is getting around the vast electorate, as he has been for three decades. He is deeply familiar with the issues yet has few answers for the electorate's thorniest problems. He discusses them with ERWIN CHLANDA.

Jacinta Price's bluster: parents not mentioned

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.

 

UPDATE 1.25pm: Facebook statement by Jacinta Price and our reply.

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.

Jacinta Price spits dummy

A hysterical dummy spit by Jacinta Price, following publication of a report on Monday critical of her record as a town councillor, is unbecoming of a candidate for a major party in a Federal election. ERWIN CHLANDA reports. PHOTO: Ms Price at a meeting of the Town Council from which she has resigned despite her pledge to serve a full term.
