Dale vs Dale in Braitling

 

 

A prominent local puts her hand up for the Territory Alliance in Braitling held by Labor by the slimmest of margins. And the Chief Minister gets a caning for the keeping the West Macs locked down and his four year long futile campaign for a national Aboriginal gallery. The 2020 election campaign gathers momentum.

Mayor's 'conflict': council to ask for independent legal opinion

 

 

Council's in-house legal advice had not adequately dealt with the perception of a conflict of interest, argued councillors. KIERAN FINNANE reports. 

It pays to read the fine print: were First Nations fear-mongering?

"They will take your vote, and take away your freedom! Lock you up, and give your children away! Make you pay for living on your land! Make you pay rent forever! Kick you out of town after taking your money! Control your Governance and say they now what's best for you!"

That was the fine print on the back of the First Nations Political Party how-to-vote cards, a lot more dramatic and threatening than the spoken statements of Ken Lechleitner, co-founder of the party with Maurie Ryan, whom we have quoted in recent articles.

The Alice Springs News Online asked Mr Lechleitner if these messages to voters could be substantiated. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
