Petition to Protect Our Australian Way of Life

Petition to Protect Our Australian Way of Life

Australians get to enjoy an amazing quality of life with family and friends.

Our unique and long established Westminster system of government provides us with peace and prosperity, allowing us to enjoy time with family, privately help the less fortunate in the community, and invest for future generations.

Australian Monarchist League is calling for a show of support from the Australian community to petition so we keep the current Australian Westminster system of government


What makes Australia the best country on earth?

People, families, and communities thrive in Australia. Where else in the world can citizens receive:

Job and business opportunities
Top level healthcare
World class education
Beautiful and diverse environment
Security and regulation
Affordable utilities
Reliable infrastructure

The Australian government provides us with all these things, it shows how efficient and effective our system of government is. 

Why is the Australian government so successful while other countries struggle?

The key difference is, Australia has its own unique Westminster system of government which contains a:

Lower House
(i.e. House of Representatives)
Publicly elected
Proposes policies and changes.

 

Upper House
(i.e. Senate)
Publicly elected
Reviews, approves and amends proposed policies and changes.

 

Governor-General
(i.e. Crown's Representative)
Takes control in exceptional circumstances.
Prime Minister can petition the Crown to dismiss the Governor-General.

 

The Lower House proposes policies, and the Upper House reviews, approves and can amend the proposed policies.

This two-step process distributes the power amongst the politicians and allows for constructive debate and solutions that satisfy the wider community.

The Governor-General’s role is to ensure this political process is working.

How is Australia now under threat?

The republican lobby groups are pushing to replace the Governor-General with an elected or appointed head of state that will likely belong to one of the two major Australian political parties.

If one political party held a majority in the lower house and upper house, and also held the head of state, that political party could exploit their position to remain in power uncontested.

It would be the beginning of political corruption and the end of Australia as we know it.
