2018 News
2018-03 SOUTH AUSTRALIA'S ELECTION FOR BOTH HOUSES:
See the ABC's reports of seats won. Compare operation of the Lower House single-member system with the PR-STV system used for the Upper House. See also PRSA(SA)'s letter in the Adelaide Advertiser.

2018-03 RESULTS OF THE HARE-CLARK ELECTION FOR TASMANIA'S HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY:
See how counting in the 33rd general election since 1909 using the Hare-Clark system for the whole of Tasmania indicated a majority Liberal Government, even though the final result for all 5 divisions expected on 16 March 2018 awaited the deadline for receipt of postal votes, which was 3 days earlier.

2018-03 BRITISH COLUMBIA TALKS BY A PRSA MEMBER AND A BC CITIZEN FORMERLY FROM HOLLAND:
See the video in which firstly Malcolm Baalman of the PRSA describes the benefits of Australia's use of the Hare-Clark form of PR-STV, which is based entirely on the direct election of individual candidates that are also identified on the Robson Rotation ballot paper by any party grouping they might choose to show.

Sjeng Derkx then describes the Netherlands' party list system, which he thinks suits it. For British Columbia though, he supported a Hare-Clark type system, which nearly reached the 60% support in BC's first referendum on replacing its plurality system, and he would choose PR-STV at BC's 2018 referendum.

2018-01 INVITATION TO COMMENT ON VICTORIA'S DRAFT LOCAL GOVERNMENT BILL 2018:
PRSAV-T Inc's response to the Victorian Government's invitation for public comment on this draft bill, the deadline for such comment being 16 March 2018, appears here. Its response is consistent with the Branch's submissions to the Andrews Labor Government in 2016, and 2015, and the Napthine Liberal Government in 2014 and 2013, and with PRSAV-T Inc. Policy V-T_02 'Victoria's municipal councils'.
