    Sign the petition: Petition to Appoint a Shadow Minister for the Constitution

    Petition to Appoint a Shadow Minister for the Constitution


    On the 31st of May 2022, Anthony Albanese appointed an Assistant Minister for the Republic who has now been sworn in as a part of the new government. We have therefore created the below petition calling on the Leader of the Opposition, the Hon. Peter Dutton MP, to appoint a Shadow (Assistant) Minister for the Constitution.

    We call on all those who support and wish to uphold Australia’s current Constitution to please sign the petition as set out below.

    To The Honourable Peter Dutton MP

    On the 31st of May 2022 the Prime Minister, the Hon. Anthony Albanese MP announced his cabinet which included the Hon. Matt Thistlethwaite MP as Assistant Minister for Defence, Assistant Minister for Veterans’ Affairs and Assistant Minister for the Republic.

    On the 5th of June 2022 you announced your Shadow Ministry which did not include any formal opposition to Mr Thistlethwaite as Assistant Minister for the Republic.

    We, the undersigned, do therefore humbly petition you as Leader of Her Majesty’s Opposition to give consideration to appointing a Shadow (Assistant) Minister for the Constitution. Furthermore, we earnestly request, in the event you do appoint such a Shadow Minister for the Constitution, that that Minister not be a republican.

    Yours sincerely

  • 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.


    (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. 

    Sign the petition to show your support in keeping the current Australian Westminster system of government.
