Electoral Changes To Get Third Reading

by Editor on Tuesday, March 18, 2014 — 10:46 AM

The Government intends to complete the passage of electoral law changes when Parliament sits today.

After Question Time, MPs are scheduled to return to the interrupted third reading debate on the Electoral Amendment Bill.

The bill is mainly a “tidy up” of electoral law, though changes made in select committee which require a voter to affirm their identity beyond presenting an easy vote card means it is now opposed by Labour and others. National MPs say the other parties supported the move in select committee and are just playing politics.

Following this MPs will turn to the second reading debates on the Victims’ Orders Against Violent Offenders Bill and the Land Transport and Road User Charges Legislation Amendment Bill.
