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.

    We are at all times at the mercy of a range of divisive, self-interested or sinister motives of various lobby groups and vested interests with a sense of entitlement to policy outcomes and access to public funding.

    I look forward to the instatement of an anti-corruption body equipped with sufficient power to investigate and prosecute individuals and groups undermining due democratic process. Best of luck with the campaign. Thank you.
