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 I doubt it- and if that's the case it can't be repealed because it requires legislation.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.

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.
