Inland rail a trifecta for Toowoomba region: mayor
A group called Bullet Train for Canberra has applied to register as a political party for the October ACT election.
Party registrations closed on Saturday and so far seven parties have been approved including.
They are the Australian Labor Party, the Australian Motorist Party, The Liberal Democratic Party, The Liberal Party of Australia, Pangallo Independents Party, the ACT Greens, and the Community Alliance Party ACT.
Electoral commissioner Philip Green says anyone wanting to object to the Bullet Train for Canberra Party has until July 20 to do so.
"If they for example believe that the name of the party breaks the rules to do with the permissible names for political parties," he said.
"There's still that 14 day objection period to go before we absolutely decide whether this will be a registered party for the election."
Mr Green says two other applications are currently being considered and further details will be made public as soon as possible.
"To register as a political party, a party must have at least 100 members who are on the ACT electoral role, they have to submit a copy of the party's constitution to the electoral commissioner," he said.
"And there are various rules about the names that are acceptable for a political party, for example you can't have a name that's longer than six words."
