What do you think specifically needs addressing?
What are you hoping to achieve?
I’m not entirely sure how to respond to the question. It’s a redistribution: electorates get out of whack population-wise and interested people make proposals to fix it.
Why make a submission? This is admittedly a bit of a side project, and I’m doing it mostly for the sake of the exercise; I’ll be particularly interested to see what other people come up with and their reactions.
Remember, the original pitch was “I’ll be making a submission to this, would NC be interested in having it be a PPAU thing?” NC said “OK” and here we are.
With regard to specific outcomes, I tried to really mess with the Dickson boundaries (Peter Dutton’s electorate). It would’ve been justifiable, but the numbers didn’t quite support it.
I’m not doing hardcore voting-intention analysis to construct these boundaries, if anyone’s wondering — I don’t yet have the toolchain for that and it’d be fairly orthogonal to PPAU’s interests right now anyway.
On current form, we’ll have a more comprehensive submission on this than the Greens and any other minor party will, except (probably) KAP. I call that a win
