The Liberal Party will ask the Australian Electoral Commission to investigate an alleged electoral violation of the captain’s choice of Anthony Albanese for a seat in Sydney.
Labor candidate for Parramatta, Andrew Charlton, allegedly broke election laws by providing the wrong address to the Australian Electoral Commission.
Mr Charlton had listed a rental in Woollahra owned by his wife as his place of residence, but had moved to Parramatta last month.
Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese said he expected “the rules to be followed” when asked about the alleged breach on Saturday.
In response, a spokesperson for the Coalition campaign confirmed that the Liberal Party will ask the authorities to investigate the matter.
“This afternoon, the Liberal Party will write to the AEC requesting an investigation into possible violations of election law by Mr. Charlton,” the spokesperson said.
