LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY - Closed ePetition Details

Hold Local Government Elections Sooner

Petitioner: Dr Maxwell Brinsmead | Member: Singh, Gurmesh | No. of Signatories: 268 | Date closed: 22/12/2020
To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly, the concerned citizens of NSW draw to your attention the democratic principles and unpopular consequences arising from the decision to postpone the 2020 local government elections for 12 months. We respectfully petition the Assembly to: 1. Review its decision to postpone local government elections until September 2021 2. Remind the elected councillors of NSW of their extraordinary positions of responsibility during any period of deferred elections by requiring that they refrain from decisions or commitments that have, or may have, significant or unmeasured community concern or opposition.
