49 Voluntary voting

The Senate is of the view that having regard to the fact that the system of voluntary voting provided for in the Constitutional Convention (Election) Bill 1997 is for the election of delegates to a specific Constitutional Convention for a limited and temporary purpose in special circumstances, the system should not be seen as a precedent for elections of members of Parliament or for any other ballots including referendums.

(28 August 1997 J.2354)

Note: Resolution agreed to as a consequence of an amendment to the question that the report of the committee on message no. 347 from the House of Representatives relating to the Constitutional Convention (Election) Bill 1997 be adopted.
