Atkinson Committs to Repeal
South Australian Attorney-General Michael Atkinson has committed to repeal unpopular amendments to the South Australia Electoral Act 1985. The amendments would have made it illegal for people to anonymously comment on the upcoming state election online.
The decision to repeal came after harsh criticism from online news sites, bloggers and everyday Internet users who posted comments about the issue.
Atkinson can be seen apologising in an online video.
