Submission: 2022 Victorian State Election Inquiry

Truth in political advertising, reform of the Legislative Council and fair political finance laws
by Elizabeth Morison and Bill Browne

Reforms to Victoria’s Legislative Council should ensure proportionality and representativeness by adopting a state-wide electorate. Victoria’s political finance laws seem to unfairly disadvantage challengers, to the benefit of incumbents.
