Why a petition?
As a West Australian resident, you have a right to petition your government for issues you would like the government to consider.
Politicians are obliged to receive your petition; consider it; and to provide a response.
You may not get the response that you want, but at the very least, you'll know where the politicians stand, and that may help you to decide where to cast your vote at the next state election.
How does a petition work?
In Western Australia and since 4 January 2022, petitions are now e-petitions.
To submit one, all you need do is:
- Complete and submit the form located on the parliamentary website; and
- Ask a member of parliament - such as myself, Wilson Tucker - to facilitate your e-petition by completing the form located on this page.
What happens next?
Once your e-petition has run its course, I will table it in Parliament.
After that, your e-petition will go the Environment and Public Affairs Committee, who consider and produce a report on it.
Also, I'll also do my very best to generate a bit of public exposure for your e-petition.
