The priest described as "anti life" in a Catholic Insight story [catholicinsight.com] was elected in this past Monday's by-election with a large majority.

Regardless of anti-life or whatever my understanding was that current canon law prohibited priests from holding political office; at least that seems to be the interpretation taken in Australia; it is a question that has been raised in relation to the percieved political capabilities of a Jesuit here on at least one occasion, but the conclusion the partisan nature of politics was incompatible with the priestly state.
