Major changes planned for State Electorate Boundaries

Monday, 12 September 2016

The Electoral Districts Boundaries Commission has issued its Draft Report into electoral reform, however, despite the acknowledgement of the need to fix the imbalance, the swing-to-lose pendulum shows that South Australians could again find themselves in the position where the majority of voters do not get the party they voted for.  Significant changes are proposed to both Kavel and Heysen in the Hills District. 

 The fundamental premise of the Constitution is that 50 percent of the vote should provide for 50 percent of the seats, which means 24 seats out of 47 seats to form Government.

In the 2018 election, if both parties were to achieve 50 percent of the two-party preferred vote, the Liberal Party would win 19 seats compared to the Labor Party winning 28 seats.  That is not democratic and it is not acceptable for voters in South Australia.  There must be fairness and a just outcome for all South Australians.  State Liberal Leader Steven Marshall said that the State Liberal Party will make its concerns known in its submission to the Draft Report.

The final report is due to be released in November.
