Calling on the Governor General to dissolve parliament and call a General Election
This petition had 1,085 supporters
The Federal Coalition Government have suspended the sitting of the House of Representatives until September 10th 2018 in a self-serving attempt to prevent a vote of no confidence in the Lower House that would likely trigger a Federal Election. This is because the Liberal Party is not sure it commands the confidence of the house given the self-indulgent, destabilising behaviour of some in the Liberal Party to remove an elected Prime Minister.
I propose that we, the citizens of Australia, voice our displeasure with the current destablising and selfish behaviour of the Federal Parliamentary Liberal Party by signing this petition asking the Governor General, Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC, to use the powers entrusted to his office to dissolve both houses of Federal Parliament and call an election as per section 5 of the Australian Constitution.
We, the Australian People deserve a Federal Government that is solely focused on serving the national interest before party political interest.
We, the Australian People, are sick and tired of the merry-go-round of leadership changes of the last decade and look to use this petition to voice this sentiment to both major parties, Liberal and Labor, that we will no longer tolerate the removal of our elected Prime Minister before an election.
We, the Australian People, will no longer allow our most critical national institution, our Federal Parliament, to be trashed and eroded by the party political interest of the few.
We seek an election to enable the Australian People to elect a stable Government that will behave in the national interest and preserve the integrity of our democratic institutions which are so central to our way of life.
If you agree with the sentiments expressed above, please sign this petition.
