In the forthcoming election, the Community Action Party supports the Minor Parties Pact. We ask our supporters to vote for us, and then the other minor parties and independents (we may offer specific recommendations later), leaving the major parties blank on the ballot paper. While obviously a blunt weapon, this appears to be the only plausible method to broaden community representation in the Legislative Assembly.
Alvin moved to Canberra over 30 years ago and lives in Dickson. As a government lawyer he drafted legislation for the Commonwealth and the ACT. He has a PhD in Constitutional Law. With no house of review as a check on executive power, many ACT laws are passed without proper scrutiny. If elected, Alvin will rigorously examine proposed legislation. Alvin is actively involved in his church and is a keen member of the Canberra Welsh Society. He plays bridge and enjoys walking our hill trails.
