Petitioning is one of the traditional forms by which citizens can make requests direct to Parliament. A Petition is a formal request signed by at least one person and placed before the Parliament with the object of persuading the Parliament to take some particular action. For example, a petition may request the alteration of the general law or the reconsideration of some administrative decision.
Standing Orders of the Legislative Assembly provide for two types of petitions:
From the link above, you can locate an ePetition, find out information about its status and, if it is a current ePetition, join the E-Petition. The web site also provides information to assist you with starting an ePetition, including an Information Brochure ePetition Request Form and Members of Parliament contact details.
The Paper Petitions process is essentially the same petitions process that has been operating in Queensland for over 140 years. It involves a Paper Petition being circulated in the community for signatures and then lodged by a Member.
Please contact the Mulgrave Electorate Office if there is a community issue that you would like to petition the Parliament over.
