Why not right now?
Does parliament sit between now and the election? I doubt it- and if that's the case it can't be repealed because it requires legislation.
Well seeing how they only sit for three to six days a month I thought they might get a few sessions in before the election is called. But apparently not. There's nothing on the calendar for 2010 yet.
Exit on the right in the direction of travel.

Atkinson is moving to repeal the ["internet censorship"] section of the electoral act immediately, as suggested by Vickie Chapman:

[ATTORNEY-GENERAL Michael Atkinson will move immediately to repeal controversial laws which sparked an outcry over censorship of the internet.]

It might be easier to do this than to remove his foot from his ... mouth.
