Our proposal –
In February 2015, to ensure Queenslanders are served with a more accountable Parliament, we announced that an LNP Government would conduct a referendum on fixed four year parliamentary terms during the current parliamentary term.
Our proposal ensures that Queenslanders would have a direct say in how their governments are elected and the manner in which elections are called.
Depending on the result of that referendum, we have prepared an exposure draft bill so that Queenslanders can be confident about the legislation they would be voting for, prior to a vote, and have begum consulting on that draft legislation. We believe that it is time for a mature discussion on this issue.
