No joke tickets ran candidates in this year’s election. There were a number of Facebook joke tickets created for this year’s election, including: Hon Charles Smith MLC for ANUSA, So Fresh ANUSA, Fiji First For ANUSA and SDA for ANUSA, and a New Dumb Policy for ANUSA Everyday until August 16th.
ANUSA Elections will be occurring online from 13 August to 16 August.
For fairness, we randomised the order of tickets for each position. We previously stated the total number of Gen Reps was 33, it is in fact 42.
