AEC Statement: Mr Vivian Lobo

Updated: 8 May 2022

On Friday 22 April 2022 candidates for the federal election were formally declared at public events held across Australia, in accordance with the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918 (Electoral Act).

Mr Vivian Lobo was among those candidates declared – as a candidate for the Liberal National Party of Queensland in the Division of Lilley (QLD).

The AEC is aware of reports made in the media recently about Mr Lobo’s enrolled address.

Following Mr Lobo’s candidate nomination for the 2022 federal election we have reviewed the declarations made on Mr Lobo’s enrolment and nomination forms. There is concern as to whether the information provided by him regarding his residential address on these forms is false.

The AEC has referred this matter to the AFP for investigation.

Candidate nominations for the Division of Lilley must remain as they were formally declared on 22 April 2022. Ballot papers have been printed and distributed across the country for early voting to begin on Monday and many postal voters have already received their postal voting packs.
