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.

    Erosion in trust of our governing institution is a surefire descent into either full blown corruption, or enable a strongman to drag us into fascism. Accountability of our civic institutions needs to happen for our federal leadership

    Good luck. A federal ICAC with teeth is urgently needed, but both Libs and labs will not bring it in.

    Australia needs a federal government that can be relied upon to tell the truth to the population this LNP government are illegitimate because the won the election by lying to the people of Australia about the labor party wanting to introduce death taxes they also lied about franking credits and how many people would benefit from their changes lied about dividend imputation lied the entire election cycle then there is the issues of sending their attack dogs to raid the media and private individuals (Aniks Smethurst) the LNP government instigated raids on the AWU by the AFP in the pursuit of dirt on the then opposition leader Bill Shorten by Michaelia Cash who then refused to answer questions posed by the AFP and instead of charging her with hindering an investigation like any other citizen in this country she walked away scott free . The state of Australian Politics at the moment is a disgrace and needs to be fixed and the only to do this is to have a federal ICAC and charge and convict all those that participated in anything illegal or corrupt

    You can add a Federal Royal Commission into the Murray Darling Basin Plan/Authority while you’re at it. Not happy.
