Real power rest with the Gover­nor-Gen­eral

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western opinion -

PROM­ISES and poli­cies: what else can po­lit­i­cal par­ties use to at­tract votes?

The real power lies in the re­serve pow­ers of the Gover­nor-Gen­eral.

It is from this po­si­tion that poli­cies are called for and the par­lia­ment to come up with a rec­om­men­da­tion to im­ple­ment those poli­cies.

In Aus­tralia, the Gover­nor-Gen­eral is not a mere fig­ure­head as some might try to rel­e­gate the po­si­tion, but is the rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the whole of the peo­ple as dis­tin­guished from a po­lit­i­cal party hold­ing of­fice for the time be­ing. Wally Mor­ris, Joon­danna.
