    the Wikileaks Party officially tell its supporters to vote their preferences for other parties instead of the Australia First Party?    It needs to correct the record and advise its supporters correctly if it is really an administrative error.

    I'm checking the Sydney Morning Herald regularly between now and election day on September 7.  If Wikileaks broadcasts corrected guidance to its voters, hopefully the SMH will mention that.

      There's enough fire around this issue that the smoke you're providing helps nothing.

      47 is the new 51!

      Amid a storm of criticism on Twitter, the WikiLeaks party released a statement on Sunday that said it was not aligned with any other political group and would prefer not to allocate preferences at all.

      "In allocating preferences between 53 other parties or groups in NSW some administrative errors occurred, as has been the case with some other parties," the WikiLeaks statement said.

      "The overall decision as to preferences was a democratically made decision of the full national council of the party. According to the national council decision, the Shooters and Fishers and the Australia First party should have been below Greens, Labor, Liberal.

      " As we said, we aren't aligned with anyone and the only policies we promote are our own. We will support and oppose the policies of other parties or groups according to our stated principles."
