“Mr. Pike denies this statement. He acted in self-defense after numerous provocations by Labor, who affixed signs to Mr. Pike’s stamp. He will cooperate with any investigation to clear his name, ”they said.
“The predominant experience of this campaign is the civic and orderly behavior of volunteers from all sides of local politics before the survey. This is an unfortunate outcome, and the party is calling for more respect from all volunteers.

The photos were supplied to the NCA Newswire by the LNP as examples of ALP signs that were allegedly affixed to Mr. Pike’s mark.
