A party that does not participate in an election with a view to forming a government, or at least of winning a substantial number of seats in Parliament, is not a party that possesses the capacity to advance the objective of effective representation.
Elections are fair and equitable only if all citizens are reasonably informed of all the possible choices and if parties and candidates are given a reasonable opportunity to present their positions.
More specifically, the Attorney General submits that the 50-candidate threshold advances three separate goals: (i) to improve the effectiveness of the electoral process; (ii) to protect the integrity of the electoral financing regime; and (iii) to ensure that the process is able to deliver a viable outcome for our form of responsible government.

General Glut, sworn enemy of Jean-Baptiste Say and neo-classical economics, continues to maintain as he has through the days of Sismondi, Marx and Keynes that capitalism's tendencies are toward crises of overaccumulation and underconsumption.
