Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

The City of South Perth Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion led by Cecilia Brooke achieved a voter turnout of at least 50 per cent in the amal­ga­ma­tion poll. That fig­ure made the poll re­sult legally bind­ing. A ma­jor­ity of "No" votes to the abo­li­tion of both the City of South Perth and the Town of Vic­to­ria Park and the for­ma­tion of a new City means there will be no merger be­tween them. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all par­tic­i­pants whose ac­tions brought democ­racy to life – coun­cil, res­i­dents' as­so­ci­a­tion, vot­ers, me­dia, sup­port­ers and fun­ders.
