FROM THE WEB
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.
