Independents who are vying for the electorate of Eden-Monaro said the main challenge they face on their campaigns is getting the same amount of attention as major parties.
“[The Liberal candidate] Peter Hendy can afford not to go to any forum and answer questions of the public,” Independent candidate Daniel Grosmaire said.
“Most of the major parties have had their major policies explained on TV or radio.
“If we talk face to face with someone there is no problem, but because we do not have much media attention we can’t spread the word easily.”
Mr Grosmaire said when you have a new idea, like an Independent may have, it takes a much longer time to explain it to someone.
