Libraries call for AEC investigation of candidate

Parramatta Labor candidate Andrew Charlton may have broken election laws by listing a rental in Woollahra owned by his wife as his place of residence.

The Liberal Party will ask the Australian Electoral Commission to investigate an alleged electoral violation of the captain’s choice of Anthony Albanese for a seat in Sydney.

Parramatta Labor candidate Andrew Charlton allegedly broke election laws by providing the wrong address to the Australian Electoral Commission.

Mr Charlton had listed a rental in Woollahra owned by his wife as his place of residence, but had moved to Parramatta last month.

Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese said he expected “the rules to be followed” when asked about the alleged breach on Saturday.

In response, a coalition campaign spokesperson confirmed that the Liberal Party will ask authorities to investigate the matter.

“This afternoon, the Liberal Party will write to the AEC requesting an investigation into possible violations of election law by Mr. Charlton,” the spokesperson said.
