Podcast #108: Inside a party’s redistribution submission


Shane Easson has been drawing up redistribution submissions for the Australian Labor Party since 1984. This year he’s not doing the Labor submission for New South Wales, although he is working on those in some other states, and he came on the podcast to talk about how it works, the things you’ve got to consider when writing such a submission, and whether they have any influence on the outcome.

We also discuss some of the likely outcomes of the current NSW federal redistribution and the need to change some names.

  1. Very interesting to hear from Shane!

    Good points around balancing the interests of your MPs and branches with remembering your audience and maintaining credibility with the Commissioners.
