The lock is in: Bernardi

April 30, 2019

Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi says voting preference deals are an 'amazing case of virtue signalling' and that neither of the major Parties will move to get rid of compulsory preferential voting because 'they know their votes would plummet'.

The South Australian Senator has told Chris Kenny on Sky News, moving away from compulsory preferential voting would 'remove the lock on the red or blue team forming government'.

“You know the lock is in, when they reform the Senate vote. And in the Senate now, you don’t have to number all the boxes, there’s no voting tickets.”

Senator Bernardi continued, “In fact, a valid vote is just 1, you can vote for the party of your choice - even though the parties have to advertise you’ve got to choose a minimum of six above the line. But they didn’t change the House of Representatives system and that’s because they knew they would be disadvantaged by it.”
