QUEENSLAND STATE GOVERNMENT DOES A “BACKFLIP” ON THEIR OWN LEGISLATION

11 Jan 2021 11:37 AM | Sylvia (Administrator)

The Queensland Local Government Association (QLGRA) reported that the Queensland Labour Government rushed through a Bill allowing the “next in line” to serve out the term of a departed Mayor if a vacancy occurs within 12 months of the election,  effectively becoming a “mayor in waiting”.   The QLGRA  opposed this Bill saying that a By-election should occur, but the QLGRA recommendations were ignored.   However,  when the Rockhampton Mayor resigned, the State Government didn’t appear to like the “next in line” so did a back flip and introduced retrospect laws to prevent this from happening.   To read more click here https://www.qlgra.org.au/qlgra-insights-december
