The ACT election 2016: back to the future?

17 Feb 2017


This resource is a summary of the outcome of the ACT election, held in October 2016.

It was an unusual election in that it saw little movement in party support from the previous election in 2012 and no fringe parties or candidates were elected. The main issues were the construction of a tramline, the implementation of tax reform, the demolition of over one thousand houses to resolve asbestos contamination and allegations of corruption.
