James McGrath says the joint standing committee on electoral matters will continue with its efforts to ensure that Australia’s electoral system remains free from foreign interference. McGrath is the chairman of the committee, and he says there has been no evidence to date of such interference, but that the need to be vigilant on such matters remains important. He says cyber interference has the potential to undermine confidence in Australian democracy.
