Senator IAN MACDONALD —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

  That the Senate—

    (a)notes that:

      (i)the electors of South Australia have recognised the irrelevance of the Australian Democrats,

      (ii)the Australian Democrats vote in the Lower House has fallen by 1.37 per cent to less than 9 per cent, and

      (iii)this fall occurred in spite of the heavy campaign involvement of the Leader of the Australian Democrats (Senator Kernot), the Deputy Leader of the Australian Democrats (Senator Lees) and former leader Senator Coulter; and

      (b)calls on the few Australian Democrats supporters remaining in Australia to insist that their remaining representatives take note of this rejection and stop their capitulation to the Labor Party.
