“Council understands that petitions are being filed in the Court of Disputed Returns regarding the validity of the City of Adelaide election results.

“This action does not affect the operation of the Council, which was sworn in on 24 November, and we will continue to make decisions and address the many issues that face the city.

“I believe it is important to avoid distractions while the various investigations and the court action are in train.

“I have confidence and respect for the processes of the investigation and the legal deliberations and will, of course, support the outcome.

“The new Council and our administration are working hard and will continue to get on with the task of delivering for our community.”
