“I want NSW to have the most transparent information funding campaign campaign in Australia. This will be the basis for the next NSW Labor government I hope to lead ”.


He will urge NSW Labor to assert itself as a party that “welcomes investigation and will fight corruption in our ranks wherever we find it.”

ICAC has been under re-examination this past week in the midst of the deeper fallout since Gladys Berejiklian’s shock resignation on Friday.

Berejiklian said she had no choice but to resign after the commission announced it was investigating whether she had violated public confidence or allowed or encouraged corrupt behavior from her ex-boyfriend that made former Liberal MP Daryl Maguire disgrace.

State and federal Liberal MPs paralyzed the ICAC for its decision to launch a four-week public inquiry into the former prime minister on October 18 as NSW reopens after hitting the 80 percent vaccination target.

NSW Liberal Party President Philip Ruddock and Health Minister Brad Hazzard – former federal and state attorneys respectively – questioned the public hearings central to the ICAC.


Both suggested that the “closed door” model for jurisdictions such as Hong Kong should be considered.

Former NSW Liberal MP Pru Goward also criticized the corruption watchdog, saying its findings often “ruin a person’s career but never lead to any legal outcome.”

In his first speech as prime minister on Tuesday, Perrottet ruled out any proposal he would consider revising the corruption watchdog or its functions, saying its work “must be respected.”

Sir. On Saturday, Minns will argue that transparency and public accountability for the model are what make it critical for the government to function properly.

The state conference will be hosted at Zoom for the second year in a row due to the pandemic.

A key focus of the online event will be to launch a 12-month review of the NSW Labor platform ahead of next year’s personal conference and up to the 2023 state election.

The platform will outline the principles, values ​​and beliefs of a future NSW Labor government.

Sir. Minns has been vocal about his commitment to targeting Western Sydney in the next state election, with the region home to key battlefields for both Labor and the coalition.

The rising cost of living, fines and tolls for families in western Sydney will be a key focus for Labor in the up to 2023 vote.

A Labor strategist said the platform review will follow the approach of Federal Labor leader Anthony Albanese, who earlier this year removed the party’s federal platform.

“It’s about determining what we want to say, who we are philosophically and politically, and how we intend to serve the community we want to represent,” they said.
