Establish a Federal Anti-Corruption Watchdog Now

Australia’s trust in federal politics is at an all-time low. Australians have never trusted our politicians less.


It is time to create an independent anti-corruption watchdog to investigate and expose corruption and serious misconduct at a Federal level. The public is sick and tired of the lack of accountability revealed by repeat scandals involving federal politicians and public servants.


This is a national issue that cannot be ignored any longer.


In fact, Australia Institute research shows 88% of Australians support a federal anti-corruption watchdog, and 78% support establishing a federal anti-corruption watchdog with public hearings.


To restore faith in our democracy and help politics help itself Australia needs a Federal Anti-Corruption Watchdog with teeth.


Enough is enough: we need a Federal Anti-Corruption Watchdog now. Add your name to the call >

To the Prime Minister

We urge you to help restore integrity, accountability and trust in the Federal Parliament and Australian Public Service.

We need a Federal Anti-Corruption Watchdog with teeth.

    Corruption undermines nations, both institutionally and economically. It holds back progress and allows dangerous and harmful decisions that undermine public trust and belief in the political system. With this democracy withers and crime flourishes. There is endemic and growing corruption and the public perception of corruption. We need cleaner politics to rebuild trust.

    I cannot think of any reason that any politician could come up with to justify opposing a body that would hold federal politicians to the same standards in their workplace as every other person in the country. Anyone that opposes a federal ICAC with genuine ability to investigate and prosecute without secrecy and with the ability to enact appropriate penalty, clearly has plenty to hide and should be treated as having a conflict of interest

    Corruption in politics should be handled by police & judicial courts, not other government departments.
