Bernard Keane in today’s Crikey:
the AEC has yet again demonstrated why it is the best electoral outfit in the world, running a very close election with expedition, efficiency and integrity. There are always hiccups, but when you see how it’s done in comparable countries, you can only be amazed at how well the AEC does it.
It is one of our finest public institutions.
I’ll second that. I don’t think we appreciate them enough.
