The Rationale for the Advancing Democracy Model

The rationale explains the reasons why the public should support the Advancing Democracy proposal to amend the Commonwealth Constitution, and why the change should be made now.

The argument is developed over twelve chapters, accessible via the side panel. The chapters should be read in sequence, with occasional reference as required to the five appendices listed under the Appendices menu option.

Those who wish to go straight to the model should read the detailed summary in Chapter 3.

The exact text of the proposed amendments is available under the Proposed Constitution menu option. The Drafting Notes within the Drafting Principles section explains why the words in each amending section have been chosen.
