Election 2016: What you need to know!

It is expected Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull will visit Government House in the next couple of days to confirm the date for the next Federal Election as July 2nd.

This will trigger the start of the Election Period, which means special provisions within the Broadcast Services Act will apply to all our broadcasts until the close of voting.

As discussed at our October Members Meeting, all presenters presenting political material should observe at all times our Political Disclosure and Access Policy.

This policy contains more details about the special provisions that also apply during the Election Period.

Also for your reference, here are some fact sheets from ACMAand the CBAA.
