Parliament must resume - democracy requires scrutiny

0 have signed. Let’s get to 25,000!


The Australian Government has suspended Parliament until August. This is an undemocratic and unprecedented response to the COVID-19 outbreak, as Parliamentary democracies around the world are continuing to meet.

Parliament must resume as soon as possible to give proper scrutiny to government decision making. The COVID-19 crisis calls for greater spending of public money and increased government intervention. MPs are elected to represent the people in these important decisions. Parliamentary democracy is needed now more than ever.

Sign the petition to join our call for Parliament to resume.
