In December 2012, the Queensland Government announced a comprehensive review of the electoral process (attached below for ease of reference). The submission was made on March 1st and the Review is ongoing.
The Foundation has made a submission referring to three major parts of the review: the chance to apply a candidate diversity rule to the electoral funding received by the parties, the application of truth in advertising legislation, and explores the merits of adding a 'none of the above' option within a compulsory voting environment.
The submission also advocates the merits of using randomly selected citizens in deliberative processes as a way of delivering more trusted decisions.
