CIR Constitutional Amendment

There is growing distrust of Australian government processes which are often cumbersome, and introduce changes unsupported by a majority of citizens. What can be done to improve our system of democracy?

The basic shortcoming is a lack of Direct Democracy, and highlights a requirement to introduce a Citizen’s Initiated Referendum (CIR) provision into our constitution, so that ‘we the people’ get a say in how our country runs. This change alters our existing ‘top down’ system of government to a ‘bottom up’ system of democracy.

Constitution Section 128 allows for referendum, but only if the government calls them. Australia will be better served by including a CIR facility, similar to the Swiss system. Many people have called for an amendment to the Constitution to fix this shortcoming, but our pleas have fallen on deaf ears. It is becoming obvious that it is up to We the People to take action to change the system, and put the power into the hands of the people to decide on how we want to live our lives.

We have a plan for the future, offered in this website https://advance-australia.com.au/

This is a 5-Step Plan to reform the Constitution and government system. The first step is to amend the Constitution, Section 128, to put the power into the hands of the people to initiate (start) referenda. To do this, we need to propose an Act.

Robert A. Beatty BE (Minerals) FausIMMCP (ret), BobBeatty@bosmin.com has offered a solution. Please download his proposal and if you agree let’s all work together to bring this amendment about. It is the most important referendum to start with, as it will give the people the power to decide, and take that power away from the corrupt political party Parliament.

Amendment to Constitution S.128 to allow CIR

This proposal is to alter The Australian Constitution to include a provision for Citizen’s Initiated Referendum, and thereby embody a system of Direct Democracy in Australia.

Section 128 allows for referendum, but only if the government calls them. Australia will be better served by including a CIR facility, similar to the Swiss system.
