Labor Will Legislate a National Anti-Corruption Commission This Year

with Mark Dreyfus MP

Labor will legislate a National Anti-Corruption Commission by the end of 2022. 

If elected, a National Anti-Corruption Commission will be the first priority of the Attorney-General in an Albanese Labor Government. 

Australians have waited more than 1,200 days for Mr Morrison to introduce the Anti-Corruption Commission he first promised in December 2018. 

That’s 1,200 days of rorts, waste and jobs for mates.

Time’s up.

After more than three years of delay, this week Mr Morrison completely abandoned any pretence that he ever intends to introduce a National Anti-Corruption Commission. 

The need for an Anti-Corruption Commission could not be clearer after a decade of this tired, old, rort-filled government.

The Liberal Government has treated taxpayers’ money like it’s Liberal Party money and it’s well past time for that to end. 

It could not be clearer: the only way to get a National Anti-Corruption Commission is to elect an Albanese Labor Government. 

The establishment of a National Anti-Corruption Commission was one of the first major policy commitments after Anthony Albanese became the Leader of the Labor Party. And today, we are announcing that it will be one of the first priorities of an Albanese Labor Government.

Quotes attributable to Anthony Albanese:

“I am proud to announce that a National Anti-Corruption Commission would be one of the first priorities of a government I lead. Mr Morrison has delayed and obfuscated for over three years – and then this week it became clear he has absolutely no intention of honouring his promise to deliver a National Anti-Corruption Commission at all. So the question for Mr Morrison is – why do you fear an Anti-Corruption Commission? What is it you’re afraid they will find?”

Quotes attributable to Mark Dreyfus:

“Only an Albanese Labor Government can be trusted to deliver a National Anti-Corruption Commission, and we will legislate by the end of this year. Australians have seen right through Mr Morrison – they know he has no intention of cleaning up his rotten government and no interest in integrity whatsoever. We will restore trust and transparency to government – and Labor honours our promises.”
