Protest voters refused to toe the line and vote according to the (self interested) leaflets.
Emails circulating saying " PROTEST VOTES How to Lodge a Protest Vote: So long as you obtain a ballot paper in a lawful manner and place it in the ballot box you cannot be compelled to vote for the candidates on that ballot paper and may, if you wish, cast your vote against all names on that paper by neatly crossing them out. You have legally signified that none of the candidates on that ballot paper meet with your satisfaction."evidently struck a chord.
The politicians MAY now realise that they do not measure up enough to earn our votes.
Long live the activists including the whistleblowers
- they are trying to save our precious country.
