Electoral (Integrity) Amendment Bill

Proposed amendment

Denise Lee, in Committee, to move the following amendment:

Clause 5

In clause 5, new section 55D, after paragraph (d)(after page 3 line, line 37), insert:

(e)

state that the parliamentary leader of the party for which the member was elected can confirm that a majority of party members from the electorate of which the member represents agree that written notice should be given by the parliamentary leader under section 55A(3)(b).

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends clause 5 of the Electoral (Integrity) Amendment Bill to ensure that the removal of a member from a parliamentary political party is not solely at the discretion of the party leader and wider caucus, and that it has the support of party members from the electorate of which the member represents.
