Liberal Party calls for AEC inquiry into Andrew Charlton, Labor candidate for Parramatta

The Liberal Party will ask the Australian Election Commission to investigate an alleged election violation by Anthony Albanese’s captain for a Sydney seat.

Labor candidate for Parramatta, Andrew Charlton, has reportedly broken electoral laws by giving the wrong address to the Australian Election Commission.

Charlton had listed a rental property in Woollahra owned by his wife as his residence, but had moved to Parramatta last month.

Opposition leader Anthony Albanese said he expected “the rules would be followed” when questioned on Saturday about the alleged violation.

In response, a spokesman for the coalition campaign confirmed that the Liberal Party will ask authorities to investigate the matter.

Meanwhile, on his sixth trip to the western Sydney capital of Parramatta this campaign, Prime Minister Scott Morrison met members of the Indian Australian community.

He announced $250,000 for a kitchen program that provides meals to the homeless in an election pledge.


Morrison was joined by his Liberal candidate Maria Kovacic and Multicultural Affairs Minister Alex Hawke at the Hindu Council of Australia’s Meet and Greet event.

The Prime Minister spoke briefly and answered questions from the audience.
