Re: Bridge vote passes by 60% (News, Nov. 24)

Contrary to the false assertion made in this editorial, 47,388 absent registered voters, the vast silent majority of 74 per cent of Victoria’s 63,930 total registered voters, did not support the tiny minority of 10,020 Yes votes with their silence.

It is simply not true, and impossible to prove, that the absenteeism of the majority of Victoria’s eligible voters in the Nov. 20 referendum can be understood as tacitly supporting the City’s efforts.

The Concerned Citizens’ Coalition is calling for the senior government to immediately nullify the shocking results of the recent abusive farce of democratic process in Victoria, to order the City to reschedule the referendum to coincide with the municipal election in 2011.
