ACL rules out a second Make it Count with PM Gillard

Australian Christian Lobby has ruled out running another Make it Count webcast as a result of the leadership change resulting in Julia Gillard becoming Prime Minister.

ACL Chief of Staff Lyle Shelton said it would unrealistic to stage another event before the election which could be sooner rather than later.

'A lot of work goes in to putting an event like this on – not to mention the generous co-operation of the two busiest people in politics,' Mr Shelton said on the ACL website.

'However, as always, ACL has put questions to the major parties covering a range of areas of concern to Christians. We will be publishing the answers on our Australia Votes website during the campaign period.

'We are also working to assist Christians to learn as much as possible about their local candidates and their values. Elections are always a strategic time to engage politics. We will be doing our best to encourage Christians to engage and influence the values of the candidates and parties that will shape the character of the nation after the election,' Mr Shelton said.
