Change of Democratic Labour Party (DLP) logo

Friday 30 September 2022

For immediate release

The logo of the registered political party, the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) was officially changed yesterday, Thursday 29 September.

The party applied to register its new logo on Friday 29 July 2022. As required by section 49 of the Electoral Act 2002 (the Act), the Victorian Electoral Commission advertised the application and invited objections. No objections were received.

Certain logos are not acceptable under the Act, including logos that are confusingly similar to the logo of another registered political party.

The logo of the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) is acceptable under the Act and will be printed next to the party's endorsed candidates' names on ballot papers at the next State election.
