I have a far bigger concern about NOTA than Sheddy does.
What happens if the NOTA candidate is not the last name on the ballot paper (or machine)? If the NOTA candidate was the first name on the ballot then he/she would surely have to belong to NOTB. And if they were somewhere in the middle............?
A number of points:,
1) could put that question to the Government and electoral commission because they band it as a title for a political
2) NOTA is regarded universally as an positive abstention vote.
3) We do not make the rules in these elections so we have to cope as best we can within the guidelines. We are running as NOTA -None of the above, as a duty. Creating a democratic service that the government and electoral commission choose to ignore.
4) We are also field candidates although it is an irrelevance in NOTAs case since the candidates are not seeking office. But it is necessary to meet with the electoral rules and field them.
We have to work with the cards we are dealt with. But the more support we get the easier it will become. You only have to look at the history books to see our heresy at one time becomes the norm in the future.
