Josh Frydenberg and Gladys Liu election challenges should be thrown out, AEC says

There’s no proof voters changed their vote after seeing Chinese-language signs, electoral commission tells court

Frydenberg and Liu have claimed the Liberal party’s acting Victorian director, Simon Frost, “intended” the signs to say “to make your vote count put a 1 next to the Liberal candidate” but admit the translation meant “correct way to vote”, “correct voting method” or “the right way to vote”.

But it said the petitions failed to set out “the facts or matters on the basis of which the petitioner alleges that it is likely” that people then voted number 1 for or gave their preference to Liu or Frydenberg “notwithstanding that such was not the vote that they otherwise intended to cast”.

The AEC responses admit that on election day, 18 May, it formed the view the Chinese-language signs did not breach the provision banning publications which are “likely to mislead an elector in relation to the casting of a vote” and so did not order them to be taken down.

The AEC admitted the petitioners’ translations were correct and that Liu and Frydenberg’s signs had used “the same” colour scheme as the AEC; Frydenberg and Liu conceded only that it was “similar”.
