State Member for Redlands Matt McEachan has encouraged Redlands’ residents to join the campaign to help prevent the Palaszczuk Government from rigging the next state election.
A recent poll revealed the vast majority of Queenslanders oppose Labor’s decision to reintroduce compulsory preferential voting.
The Opposition yesterday launched a petition to stop the sneaky changes to Queensland’s voting system and give Redlander’s their choice back at the ballot box.
Mr. McEachan said the Palaszczuk Labor Government had stripped voters of their right to choose how they want to vote.
“Annastacia Palaszczuk and her Labor Government have made a back room deal to unwind our democracy and turn their back on 25 years of reform that was borne out of the corruption busting Fitzgerald Inquiry.
“Redlanders will be forced to vote for candidates and parties they may not want to vote for, and if they don’t, their vote won’t be counted at all.
“By signing this petition, we will be telling the Palaszczuk Labor Government to honour their election commitments, scrap their sneaky plan and bring back choice at the ballot box.
“Every Redlander deserves to be heard and now they can tell the Premier that ‘My Voice Matters’ by signing the petition,” Mr. McEachan said.
