TALLY: Victorian HSU poll results coming in

Early results have Doug Byron on 691 votes, Diana Asmar 654 votes and Marco Bolano on 784 votes apparently based on early votes received.

Results as at 6.35pm are as follows:

Bolano 3319
Asmar 2378
Byron 2357

Daniel Govan 66

Informal 98

400 below the line votes

Please note the Returning Officer has been ordered by the Federal Court not to declare the count due to alleged irregularities in the conduct of the election, so this might be delayed depending on the court’s deliberations tomorrow.

  4. does it really matter? There’s nothing left for any of them to squander. The building will be for sale soon just to pay legal fees. HSU goodbye.

  9. While the AEC hasn’t declared the result because of alleged irregularities in the ballot, we understand this could be announced tomorrow.

    We’ll update as soon as we get an official result.

  13. The irregularities before the court must be serious to stop the declaration.

    What’s happening?

  16. Feeney has told his people they spent $100 a vote. Would have been cheaper handing out fifties at hospitals.

  17. What % of the first few days of votes went to Bolano?

    Was it in the same ink?

    The same handwriting?

    This doesn’t smell right…

  18. Deny all you like, Bolano has won, and won decisively.

    The irregularities referred to are in regard to the eligibility of the Secretarial Candidate in the 1 HSU team and the Asst Sec Candidate in the Byron team.

    No longer a relevant point, because both tickets lost, in fact they came equal last.

  19. To dear ‘Will the fake ballot box scam cost Bolano?’; ‘Expensive’; and ‘Rigged’ you are absolute wankers and losers.

    Remember, as Ted Whitten used to say “winners are grinners”

    You lose f*cknuckles.

  22. A sad day for the HSU yesturday, Balono may have got there by dubious circumstances but the reflection of this out come is that around five thousand members did not want the Balono/Jackson team in office. Lets hope they get caught and the wrong is put right We have to believe that Good things do happen!!!!!!
