From John Lannan
Nominations for Federal President close on Friday 2 September and I need at least 10 nominations from each of 5 states and territories. I particularly need not just nominations from Victoria or NSW, but most especially nominations from other states and territories. Can ALP members please complete and sign the nomination form, write in their state or territory and return it to me.
John Lannan did get his nomination form in and he did get the numbers – at least as per the wording on the nomination form.
This being the ALP, the relevant rules are ambiguous, and he could still be
rejected on a technicality.
Head Office have it in their power to choose to accept his nomination or not, and the decision they make will send a signal as how keen they are to have members involved.
We will keep you informed.
