With the 2016 federal election campaign in full swing, you will be receiving lots of information from candidates and political parties in your letterboxes and social media feeds.
Are you voting for the first time? Do you have questions about how politics in Australia works? Do you want to learn more about our political system and how laws and policies are made? Poliversity is running an Australian politics 101 workshop for people who want to find out more. This event is a great opportunity for you to ask questions you have always wanted to ask on Australian politics.
Discussion topics at Australian Politics 101 include the following:
- The Australian Parliamentary system and the three levels of government.
- Are all the political parties the same?
- Is Australian politics just like ‘House of Cards?’
- What’s the role of the media in Australian politics?
- Senate voting – what do the new changes mean?
We will be joined by special guest speaker John Pandazopoulos. John was a former Minister and member of the Steve Bracks Victorian Government. During his time in the Victorian Parliament, John served as Minister for Major Projects, Tourism, Gaming and Racing. He was also the Minister assisting the Premier on Multicultural Affairs.
There will be plenty of opportunities for you to ask questions and participate in conversations. Register today as tickets are limited.
