|Minority Governments in Australia - Texts of Accords, Charters and Agreements|
This Issues Backgrounder is a companion document to Minority Governments in Australia 1989-2009: Accords, Charters and Agreements, Background Paper No 1/2010 by Gareth Griffith.
Its purpose is to offer access to the texts of the relevant agreements upon which minority governments in Australia have been formed. It is also planned to update this Issues Backgrounder, by adding any future documents of this kind.
The co-operation of all other Parliamentary Libraries is acknowledged and will, it is hoped, continue into the future as new minority governments are formed in any of the Australian jurisdictions. The plan therefore is for this document to operate as a permanent electronic repository for relevant accords, charters and agreements.
The documents are presented in chronological order.
