Public consultation

After the NSW Electoral Commissioner is satisfied that the previous steps have been met, a notice is placed in one or two newspapers and a notice is published on the NSW Electoral Commission website. 

The notice will state that the application has been received, and that any objections to the application for registration must be lodged in writing with the NSW Electoral Commissioner within 14 days after the date of publication of the notice.

A copy of the application for registration is made available for viewing at the Electoral Commission’s office reception from the date of publication of the notice until the 14-day notice period has expired.

The NSW Electoral Commissioner will consider any objections received in relation to the proposed registration of the party and may refuse to register the party on the basis of an objection.
