We'll be supporting business through better government
Through comprehensive reform, a Marshall Liberal Government will restore open and accountable government for all South Australians.
Our agenda for open and accountable government will include:
To Labor, open and accountable government means misusing millions of dollars of taxpayers’ money to advertise misleading claims about so-called government achievements.
In his first commitment as Premier in 2011, Jay Weatherill said: ‘We want to present a Government that is open and accountable.’
This is the same Premier who later insisted there could be no public hearings by the Independent Commissioner Against Corruption (ICAC) to shine a light on the Oakden aged care scandal – the same Premier who has refused to make ministers accountable for a series of massive policy and administrative failures including in child protection, the Gillman land deal, the chemotherapy dosing bungle, the Transforming Health disasters, South Australia’s lack of affordable and reliable electricity, the neglect and abuse of aged people in government care at Oakden and the failure of TAFE courses to meet basic standards, threatening the immediate job prospects of more than 800 students.
South Australians deserve better from their elected representatives.
That’s why we will end Labor’s toxic culture of secret government.
