The West Australian senate election will be staged again on April 5. There has never been anything like it in Australian political history and it is like having a senate byelection.
The result will be important for several reasons. Yet the emphasis on the recount, followed by several inquiries into the 1370 lost votes and then the Court of Disputed Returns, has distracted attention from what actually happened in this part of the federal election last September.
