Electoral Act amendments would undermine democracy and stifle dissent
Larissa Waters 16 Aug 2021
The Greens are calling on Labor and the crossbench to oppose government amendments to the Commonwealth Electoral Act that would limit democratic participation, stifle dissent and entrench a two-party system.
Greens deputy leader and spokesperson on democracy Senator Larissa Waters said:
“The Greens have long fought back against conservative government attempts to lock out smaller entrants to the political system, attempts which seek to entrench a two-party system and stymie a diversity of voices.
