At time of writing, the only official candidate bio’s we are aware of are our own.
We’ve done a quick web search, to give you an very brief idea of who all of candidates are, who they’ve worked for, what their jobs are, at least according to the internet. No doubt, we’ve missed many of their accomplishments. We’ve tried for accuracy over completeness. Any omissions or errors are mine. Hopefully, something more official will be released tomorrow, in time for voting. This is strictly draft and should not be relied on without checking with the persons involved. Any corrections received will be made.
The order below is ballot paper order. For our how to vote, see here. Centre Unity and Socialist Left How To Votes will appear tomorrow.
