The second part of this saga – whether Mullum Mullum is to go back to the polls for a by-election is yet to be decided…

The man accused of running as an illegal candidate in last year’s Manningham Council elections could face a two-year jail term for alleged breaches of the Local Government Act.

Park Orchards resident David Muscat will appear before the Ringwood Magistrates Court on April 9, charged with unlawful nomination and knowingly providing a false written declaration to the Victorian Electoral Commission.

The charges follow a lengthy investigation by the Victorian Local Government Investigations and Compliance Inspectorate.

The maximum penalty for an unlawful nomination is a two-year jail term or a $33,600 fine.
