As promised in a recent press conference, Kevin Rudd has announced an intervention into the NSW branch, including:
- A zero-tolerance approach to impropriety, with instant expulsion for corruption
- Property developers banned from standing as ALP candidates.
- Disputes and credentials committee replaced by independent judicial body
- And, possibly, reforms to the selection of the Admin Committee.
Sam Dastyari has welcomed the move, writing “I’m confident that the thousands of members of the Labor Party who have been waiting for the reform process to move forward will be very happy with the changes being made.” in an email to party members.
John Graham also welcomed the development; “This is good news for members of the NSW Labor Party.” –https://challengemagazine.com.au/past-articles/cleaner-nsw-branch/
