The Spanish newspaper El País published its analysis of the possibility that Julian Assange leaves the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he lives for over a year in asylum. Assange’s idea is to go to the Senate of his native Australia and thus he would leave his asylum.
His political party WikiLeaks “trusts that becoming senator would give a turn to his situation. The problem is that the application is starting to wane” and referred the article’s author Laura M. Lombrana.
According to journalist the organization supported by right-wing parties revealed a lack of transparency and internal democracy. “Assange and his father founded a party with a reasonably democratic structure without this internal democracy it would never have joined the National Council (address), but everything has been reduced to a farce and I must leave,” said the party’s former leader and co-founder of WikiLeaks, Daniel Mathews.
Leslie Cannold and four other members of the eleven who compose it left the party in recent days with accusations against Assange and his father, John Shipton, by giving the first veto over the decisions of the group.
The elections in Australia will be held on 7 September.
