Xenophon on the WA Senate Result

“If I’ve got a choice between a conspiracy theory or a stuff-up, I’ll go for the stuff-up every time. I don’t think you can credibly say that the integrity of the AEC is in question. I still think Clive Palmer should apologise for the outrageous statements he’s made about corruption with the AEC.

We have an incredibly clean Electoral Commission, one that is basically the envy of the world. But clearly there has been a mistake – to paraphrase Oscar Wilde – to lose one vote is unfortunate, to lose two is careless. To lose 1,375 – well, I reckon that’s cause for a fresh Senate election.” – NICK XENOPHON
