SA parties chided for 'misleading' claims

March 14, 2018

The SA Electoral Commission says a claim made by Steven Marshall on energy has misled voters.

The South Australian Election Commission has upheld a complaint that the opposition misled voters over its energy plan in recent campaigning and has requested a public correction.

The election commissioner, Mick Sherry said in a letter that Opposition Leader Steven Marshall's claim his policy would save householders $302 or more if implemented was misleading, as part of the plan was already in place.

"It contains a statement purporting to be a statement of fact that is inaccurate and misleading to a material extent," Mr Sherry said on Wednesday.
