Referral to Police

Jun 24, 2024 | News

The Electoral Commission has referred Darleen Tana MP and the publishers of Verve Magazine to Police over an alleged failure to include a promoter statement in an election advertisement published in May 2023.

Under section 204F of the Electoral Act an election advertisement must contain a promoter statement.

As this matter is now with the Police, the Electoral Commission will not be commenting further.


(Note, while the Electoral Commission does not normally name individuals referred to Police, we have done so in this case because the Green Party has already spoken publicly about the matter.)
