Too often, politicians make promises during election campaigns that they have no intention to keep. That is why, if elected Premier, I will pass an act that will sanction politicians for making dishonest statements.
An Honesty in Politics Act would sanction politicians that make dishonest statements or promises intended to be relied upon. Politicians must be held responsible for solemn promises – and the sanctions for breaking solemn promises should be enforceable in the courts. An Honesty in Politics Act will be aimed, together with other measures, at restoring public confidence in our political institutions.
Do you think we need to restore honesty to politics?
