An undemocratic party

Liam Hehir looks at the rules for the Leighton Baker Party and finds:

  • The constitution states the is the party
  • Leighton Baker appoints all members of the management committee
  • Membership acceptance is at Baker's discretion
  • Baker has responsibility for candidate selection

raises real issues about whether such a set of rules should have been accepted by the Commission as the Electoral requires democratic candidate selection.
