SHARING IDEAS THAT DO GOOD

It’s time for democratic renewal in Australia

“A political fight over Australia’s electoral system has been sparked by a radical plan from government MPs to allow voters to preference only one candidate, consider abolishing by-elections, and give governments extended, unfixed four-year terms.” (The Australian 11/12/20)

These matters are too important to leave to politicians alone. Australians deserve the opportunity to discuss any modifications and refreshments of our parliamentary elections and processes. We need: (a)    A community-wide discussion of the nation we aspire to be; (b)    A review of how our parliamentary processes can be improved; (c)    A Constitutional Council to advocate and initiate appropriate constitutional refreshment. http://democraticrenewal.org.au/
