Integrity in federal politics

Restore integrity to politics by tackling corruption, dishonesty and discrimination.

Kylea has committed to working towards:

  • Supporting a truly independent, well-resourced Australian Federal Integrity Commission with teeth, like that advocated in Helen Haines’ Integrity Bills.
  • Legislative reform to ensure truth in political advertising.
  • Legislative reform to curtail the influence of money in politics: including caps on individual donations, greater transparency and real reporting of all forms of donations including ticketing for events and other 'gifts' and real-time donation reporting.
  • Better budget oversight to stop “pork barrelling” and the waste and mismanagement of public funds, including stronger business case development, cost benefit reporting and tendering and grants transparency.
  • Appropriate and stronger powers for both the Parliamentary Budget Office and the Australian National Audit Office.

So far, North Sydney has achieved:

  • A stronger National Anti-Corruption Bill via inclusion of multipartisan oversight.
  • Development of the first ever binding Code of Conduct for all Parliamentarians and their staff.
  • Continued advocacy for the release of Julian Assange.
  • Input into a review of electoral campaign funding and political donations.

Next Steps:

  • Scrutinising the Government’s proposals in relation to strengthening whistleblower protections and reforming Australia’s privacy laws.
  • Continue to pursue greater transparency and mandate genuine community consultation for Infrastructure Australia
