NSW Labor has gone ahead and called incumbent Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore the winner of today’s furiously-contested council election, and if their prediction holds, the independent will serve an unprecedented four terms as mayor.
NSW Labor’s general secretary Kaila Murnain claims “there is no way anyone can beat” the early lead Moore has taken, which may also be enough to overcome her closest competitor, Liberal candidate Christine Forster.
That move drew condemnation from some corners due to the fact that… Well, corporations aren’t people who live in Sydney proper, nor are they people at all.
