More Civil societies: Leadership spill
What’s going on with Australia’s political system?
Are the politicians working for the Australian society or just for themselves?
Is Australia’s political system a joke?
Ever since John Howard was voted out back in 2007, Australia has gone through 4 different prime ministers – and now we are up to number 5. Julie Macken believes this to be a selfish act, forgetting that they are supposed to serve and look after the people of Australia. “Politicians are there to serve us, they are public servants. They don’t get to spit the dummy because they reckon they are a better boss than someone else. We really need to hold them to account,” she says.
Scott Morrison recently became Australia’s next prime minister after beating Malcolm Turnbull, Peter Dutton and Julie Bishop in a leadership spill.
