Conscience Vote Issues


Sustainable Australia Party MPs have freedom to follow their conscience on a range of social (usually moral or ethical) issues in parliamentary voting, including issues like voluntary assisted dying (voluntary euthanasia) and the republic.

Direct democracy

More importantly, Sustainable Australia Party supports the Australian people openly debating important issues rather than them being simply decided by the 'political class'.

That is why we advocate Swiss-style direct democracy in Australia with citizen-initiated referenda and plebiscites (also see Anti-Corruption & Governance policy).

We expect that sensibly crafted citizen-initiated referenda / plebiscites regarding issues like voluntary euthanasia and the republic would pass with a majority 'yes' vote.
