Petitioning Assistant Secretary, Australian Labor Party (Qld Branch) Evan Moorhead

Let party members elect the State Leader, Senators, Administrative Committee and State Secretary

After the crushing defeat of the Rudd / Gillard government the ALP held its first ever direct election of leader.

The process has been overwhelmingly good – helping the party turn the corner after years of infighting.

Now its time to extend this reform to every corner of the party.

Letter to
Assistant Secretary, Australian Labor Party (Qld Branch) Evan Moorhead
Following the successful member ballot for the Federal Leader of the Labor Party, rank and file members are eager to have a greater say in the running of their party.

Labor is at it's best when Branch members are engaged in party processes, and allowing branch members to have a say in the leadership of our party will only make our party bigger and stronger.

It is time to let party members elect the State Leader, Senators, Administrative Committee and State Secretary - and build a stronger, bigger and more democratic Labor Party in Queensland.
