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.

    The increasing levels of corruption in politics is of great concern. It is not only the series of rorting, entitlement misuse and conflicts of interest, but a revolving door between government, business and lobbyists which threatens democracy.

    Political corruption is beyond obvious at this point in time. Lobbies have direct control over policies and where they are breaking the law, the law is being changed to fit it. its disgusting.

    Having seen the largely effective performance of ICAC in NSW, it is vital that a Federal equivalent should be established. There is a demonstrable need to ensure that corruption has not undermined political decisions and actions. It should have retrospective powers.
