CONSCIENCE VOTE ISSUES

CONSCIENCE VOTE ISSUES

Policy
Candidates have freedom to follow their conscience on the following issues, however, our preference is for greater participatory democracy in Australia - including as follows:

  • Marriage definition – Sustainable Australia sees a plebiscite as the best way to democratically determine this important issue. Both sides should be free to present their case on a level playing field. Sustainable Australia expects the vote to support same-sex marriage. The will of the broader Australian population should prevail.
  • Republic – Sustainable Australia sees a national plebiscite as the best way to re-commence deliberations on this important issue. A plebiscite should propose that Australia should have an Australian head of state. Both sides should be free to present their case on a level playing field. The will of the broader Australian population should prevail.
  • Voluntary euthanasia – Sustainable Australia sees a national plebiscite as the best way to democratically determine this important issue. Both sides should be free to present their case on a level playing field. Sustainable Australia expects the vote to support voluntary euthanasia. The will of the broader Australian population should prevail.
