Electoral (Integrity) Amendment Bill

Proposed amendment

Hon Tim Macindoe, in Committee, to move the following amendment:

Clause 5

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

(e)

state that, after consideration of the conduct of the member, the parliamentary leader of that party for which the member was elected confirms that the party secretary of that party agrees 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 internal party leadership agree with this removal.
