Following the announcement of the formation of Victoria’s newest political party ‘People Power Victoria – No Smart Meters’ (PPV) we were inundated with membership applications. Within the first few weeks we were receiving an average of 150 membership applications per week, and thus once we passed the 500 members mark (after only 4 weeks!) we lodged our application to formally register as a party with the Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC).
As part of the registration process, PPV members have received a letter this week from the VEC requesting they confirm their party membership. All members will need to tick the appropriate boxes and send the form back in the supplied reply paid envelope.
It is imperative that members respond promptly by mailing back their confirmation as soon as possible. Failure to return confirmation forms to the VEC may result in our party’s registration being unsuccessful.
Once the party is officially registered, applications will open for members interested in running as candidates for PPV in the forthcoming Victorian elections. But firstly, all members will need to promptly send back their completed forms to the VEC.
Our membership drive is proving to be an overwhelming success, and pending confirmation responses from our members, PPV should be registered by the end of June.
We aim to continue to grow the membership base and request that you help in this regard by encouraging you (if you haven’t done so already) and your family and friends to also become members so we become a party with significant membership leading up to the November Victorian elections.
Thank you to all!
