The Opposition are inviting Queenslanders to have their say on whether the Queensland Parliament should be elected on four year fixed terms.
Currently, the Queensland State Parliament and the Commonwealth Parliament are the only two in Australia which are not elected for four year terms.
We believe there are a number of significant advantages in having fixed four year terms of government.
Firstly, it provides for better government and better public policy making because decisions can be made in the interest of outcomes and better services for Queenslanders, rather than 24 hour media cycles and short term political gain.
Secondly, it removes the constant speculation from the political process and provides fairness for all political parties by ensuring the government of the day can't call an election in the interest of their own political advantage.
Finally, it provides confidence and certainty in government, from both a public perspective and also for the business community - which drives investment, economic confidence and job creation in the State.
