Clean politics charter

Join me in my campaign to bring back clean politics and good governance for the people of NSW.

Sign our Clean Politics Charter to show the government that you care about standing up to corruption. 

Dear Premier,

Here are six critical steps we can take right now to restore integrity and public confidence in the government:

1. Lobbying transparency: All lobbying of ministers, parliamentary secretaries, ministerial staff and public servants should be minuted, and those minutes made publicly available online.

2. Limiting lobbying influence through political parties: 
Ban officials who have held positions in government from professional lobbying for five years.

3. Full personal financial disclosure: 
Require all MPs to disclose the financial affairs of their family members to make it harder to hide the proceeds of corrupt dealings; impose unexplained wealth tests on MPs; and require full disclosure of an MP’s personal and family financial interests.

4. Closing the revolving door between public office and industry:
 Extend the cooling-off period between holding public office and working for an industry that was regulated by the public official to cover all public servants and ministerial staff.

5. Ban the corrosive effect of political donations: G
reater transparency, ban donations to political parties from mining companies and government contractors, and extend limits on spending and donations to local government elections. 

6. Secure ICAC's future and a federal ICAC: The Greens are working for a constitutional amendment to secure the Independent Commission Against Corruption's future and protect it from retribution for exposing the behaviour of powerful members of parliament.

    A Clean Politics charter and a well resourced ICAC is essential for trust in government.

    We need both a strengthened NSW ICAC and also, a federal ICAC, because if there is corruption at state level then there is sure to be corruption at the federal level of government.

    Get rid of corrupting influences on our political processes including donations. Do not weaken ICAC by under mining its powers or under funding.

    There seems to be a Mafia mentality in many of the Liberal Governments decisions. Over time we have seen funding taken from ICAC, the police force, the tax office etc organisations that are there to up hold the law and seek out corruption and combat it. If this mentality is not stopped the common wealth of the people will be used in ways that are not beneficial to the citizens of Australia and will dwindled to little or nothing.

    Over the years I have seen third world countries plundered by corporations I now feel Australia might, if we are governed by Neo Liberals become another country where the many resources of the country do not benefit the citizens but rather big business(there must be a lot of people that fought for a fair and just society that are turning in their graves).

    The ICAC is the best thing for NSW.
