Long Description

This contract pays $1 if, on Monday 23 April 2012, Peter Slipper announces his resignation as Speaker of the Australian Federal House of Representatives; otherwise it pays $0.

Judging Criteria 

The contract pays on announcement by Mr Slipper or a person authorised to speak on his behalf. It does not matter whether or not a resignation actually occurs.

An announcement includes Mr Slipper issuing a media statement or holding a news conference or otherwise publicly announcing his intention to resign imminently.

iPredict's judgment is final.

All dates and times are Canberra time.

UPDATE: Mr Slipper issued a media statement on Sunday afternoon. See http://australianpolitics.com/2012/04/22/peter-slipper-stands-aside-as-speaker.html The press statement refers to him standing down pending investigations and another person acting in his behalf. In iPredict's judgment, this is NOT an announcement of an intention to resign. (6.30 pm 22/4/12 NZT)

This contract will be closed no later than 3 working days after the Close Date. The Close Date may be extended if the event outcome cannot be determined by that date.
