Part 1 Simplified outline of Chapter


179   Simplified outline

This Chapter deals with elections for positions in organisations. It does not deal with other kinds of ballots (for example, amalgamation and disamalgamation ballots, which are dealt with in Chapter 2).

Part 2 sets out the rules for the conduct of elections. Elections for office must generally be conducted by the AEC. This Part also requires the AEC to conduct elections for some positions that are not offices, if the organisation concerned requests the AEC to do so.

Part 3 provides for inquiries by the Federal Court into elections for office.

Part 4 contains rules about people who have been convicted of offences holding office in organisations.
