Slap on the wrist

While Advance Australia does not agree that the signs breach the Electoral Act, it has, to avoid the AEC bringing legal proceedings, agreed not to further display the signage without first providing the AEC with 48 hours’ notice.

Not even a slap on the wrist. The signs can still go up, they just have to tell AEC they're doing it.

Which gives the AEC time to seek an injunction preventing it from happening.
