Amendments to political donation laws

Elections Law & Safety Political Queensland Government


Statement from LNP Leader Deb Frecklington:

"While the LNP supports the CCC recommendations that stem from the Belcarra report relating to local government corruption, the Palaszczuk Labor Government has gone well beyond the CCC's recommendations for pure political gain.

"Labor is using local government corruption to mount a politically-motivated attack.

"Why should one section of our community be targeted by the Palaszczuk Government and yet the incredible influence unions have over the Labor Party be absolutely ignored by these proposed laws?

"It's quite clear that trade union bosses own Annastacia Palaszczuk's government lock, stock and barrel.

"This is evidenced by continuous government favours to the union movement and the back channel email correspondence between the ETU and Minister Mark Bailey.

"That is why the LNP will be moving amendments to extend the donation ban to trade union bosses.

"Our democracy should be a level playing field for all candidates and parties, free from vested interests.

"The largest and oldest vested interest is that between Labor and the trade union movement.

"The Queensland Government has very little influence or involvement over individual property developments, whereas they play a key role in many of the policy issues promoted by the unions.

"The unions get special treatment and unfettered access, even choosing which Labor Ministers will sit around the Cabinet table.

"They choose Labor party leaders and influence local pre-selections through factional deals."
