The Pledge is a multi-phased yet basic approach to changing the playing field for the next Australian Federal election.
The Pledge begins with a crowd sourced set of positions that constituents identify as the critical commitments they expect of candidates regardless of party affiliation, policy positions or candidate personality.
The Pledge focuses on systemic improvements rather than policies. It is neither left nor right. It is designed to strengthen the quality of our democracy and looks to give all candidates; left, right, centrist, party backed or independent an equal opportunity to understand and then commit to the direction of the community.
After the community has created the final and official Pledge, our team will approach every identified candidate for the Federal election and offer them an opportunity to sign the peoples’ Pledge.
Each candidate will receive information about how The Pledge was created, what the people decided and how we will register their commitment (or otherwise).
Every Candidate will appear on The Pledge website as either having taken The Pledge or not. They will be searchable by their electorate and name.
The Pledge intends to run a major advertising campaign across the country to let people know that they can visit the website to see which candidates in their electorate have taken The Pledge and committed to listening to the people.
democracy is all of those things and more. it is for everyone, equally, all the time…
and it is for this reason that it must be cherished and protected.
