Australian Pure Democracy
The Australian people need to be more fully informed and play a more interactive role with elected governments on legislation.
For a party to be elected it must have a contract for election and that contract for election for a major party must include the following.
A list of the ministerial Portfolios
A list of the policy’s for each individual portfolio
A comprehensive budget for each of those policy’s both current ongoing and new
A time line for the implementation of new policy programs and the deletion of old programs
ALL members of parliament to fill a Ministerial Position must have relevant qualifications consistent with what would be required in Industry to fill a similar role.
All of these Contracts for Election must be shown on a Government web site
Failure to abide by time lines once elected will see that party loose office and have to go to a general election.
The government must air all new legislation, deletions of legislation and amendments on this web site
Legislation voting on by the public before it can pass to the Parliament for voting , numbers must exceed 60%
The government website must include 3 monthly financials showing the state of the country’s finances.
