Clean politics charter

Our democracy should work for everyone, not just for the corporations who can buy a seat at the table.

I have a plan for a government built for people, not big political donors. Here are six critical steps we can take right now to restore integrity and public confidence in the government:

  1. Ban all corporate political donations
    Extend the existing bans on political donations to all corporations, including fossil fuel companies.

  2. Double ICAC funding
    Increase funding to ICAC to extend their investigative reach.
  3. Protect whistleblowers
    Whistleblowers who disclose to ICAC will be better protected in legislation from criminal, civil or disciplinary liability. 

  4. Close the revolving door between big business and government
    Legislate a five year ‘cooling-off period‘ for ministers, MPs and their staff before they can work in industries where they had significant dealings. 

  5. Extend financial disclosure and transparency
    All MPs to fully disclose their financial interests, and those of immediate family members. All lobbying meetings to be documented through publicly available minutes, published online in real time. 

  6. Create new criminal offences for corrupt conduct
    Introduce new laws to ensure corrupt findings by the ICAC can be easily translated into criminal charges. 

Sign the Clean Politics Charter to tell both sides of politics you want a government that works for the people, not corporations.

    And once we’ve got a single ICAC commissioner again. We can get an ICAC for the Federal Parliament.
