Greens back former LNP Member’s Call for Donation Transparency, Will Campaign to Restore Integrity to Queensland Politics
The Queensland Greens have urged Premier Campbell Newman to change direction and tighten controls on political donations. The LNP government is planning to remove an existing cap on political donations and increase the size of anonymous donations allowed to over $12 000.
The Queensland Greens have accused the Premier of being unable to handle criticism after he imposed onerous and unworkable administrative requirements designed to limit unions’ capacity to represent their members and engage in the public debate.
The current debate on voting systems and electoral reform ignores the ‘elephant in the room’ – the state’s exceptionally unrepresentative parliament, say the Queensland Greens.
