This document highlights the key integrity reforms our federal parliament must enact if we are to build a more democratic Australia.
The 47th Parliament presents a key opportunity to enact integrity reforms the Australian people have long been demanding and which featured prominently in the 2022 election campaign.
Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index shows Australia’s global standing is in decline. Over this past decade our corruption score has plummeted to its lowest ever level. Meanwhile the Australian public’s trust in government has reached its lowest level on record.
Australia can and must do better. With key integrity reforms, this federal parliament can build a fairer, more open, and more accountable system of government, where our elected representatives stand up for the best interests of all Australians.
