Electoral (Integrity) Amendment Bill

Proposed amendment

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

Clause 5

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

(e)

state whether the party for which the member was elected to has a board of directors and, if so, that after consideration of the conduct of the member, they have agreed by majority decision that written notice should be given by the parliamentary leader under section 55A(3)(b).

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Electoral (Integrity) Amendment Bill. This amendment will 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 the governing body of the respective party agrees with this removal.
