今天无意中看到”华人当选澳大利亚副市长 首位中国大陆背景官员”的新闻,一看是宝活市的选举.宝活市作为整个澳洲华人集中数一数二的区, 华人比例非常的高.可以说华人政治家在这个区的选举更容易获得华人的票数. 不禁看了一下选举结果,发现:

1 作为工党的传统选区, 自由党和工党在BURWOOD都推出了华人候选人.竞选中也以多元化作为卖点.

2 华人票数分散化.有全部由华人(从候选人名字看出来)组成的UNITY PARTY团结党,但由于自由党和工党也都有华人候选人, 票数分散化了.

3 值得注意的是独立派人士, WEILEY, David 80票, CHRISTOGEORGE, Chris 54票, 可是都没能获得职位. 而反观大党, 自由党,工党的二三号人物由于GROUP VOTE高仍能获得职位.

4 相当多的人都只选了GROUP PREFERENCE,即投给一个党,而不投给个人.如LABOR党五千多票,但投给个人的才二百多票. 而独立人士的GROUP H,获632票,但四名个人加起来才80多票.有的个人甚至是0票.
