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.

    There is an urgent need for a federal ICAC as MPs, Senators and, very importantly, their staff, are becoming less accountable by the year.

    This is at least the 3rd petition I have put my name to. I have no confidence that this government is taking any notice and will continue to destroy democracy and fairness in Australia. I do have confidence however, that eventually enough people will be personally impacted by their arrogance and corruption to remove them from office and ultimately punish them for their crimes

    Our current Coalition govt got away with using sports funding to pork-barrel electorates, and with erecting deliberately misleading signs in Chinese during the election. If there is no consequence for doing this sort of thing, it will just become standard practice, and our institutions and the trust in which we hold them will be eroded.

    Federal ICAC is now more urgently required than ever before. Morrison’s government takes corruption, coercion and bribery to new levels.
