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.

    Only a portion of the Fitzgerald Report was taken on board. That was a sign of resistance to change. When funding is granted, releasing it is fraught with red tape, cruel delay and rules of conformity to the fineprint that’s often not disclosed until the eleventh hour. The changes that are made that the govt expects commendation are always only half finalised or half fixed… except our taxes. If the FACWatchdog is implemented, they have well enough to do without even addressing the issues above, however, I would like to live long enough to see our leaders accountable and finish every “project” they start instead of just tidying up loose threads. I wish the creators of this petition well. We need this to happen.
