".. but who watches the political commissars...?"
It may not be an altogether fun gig though unless one is a sociopath or a marxist zealot.
Which reminds me, do the United Front candicates like Goonius get obedience-vetted by these "returning officers" too?
The lady in charge of Project Joshua Wong was indicated to be of liberal leaning and may simply wish to not to be involved in the political vetting charade. If that is indeed the case I can only feel sorry for her.
If it was up to me, none of these political commissars would be "given a f'ing chance" because the whole concept is a travesty.
However, who vets (or appoints) the vetters? Considering their power over the electoral process why wouldn't their background be of general interest?
edit: If your issue was with the general comment "it may not be an altogether fun gig though unless one is a sociopath or a marxist zealot"; how would you express that more clearly?

If Joshua gets rejected I'll reckon it will cost the Government at least 2 Empty R stations and twelve DAB and Regina Ip District offices.
The returning officer went on sick leave could mean that it has already decided rejecting Joshua. She might be afraid of getting attack after making the announcement.
And the murmurs and pre-emptive leaks and nudges started as expected, So far i am betting one beer on election getting postponed..
