    • THE REPUBLIC DEBATE
      By: Carlie , Clara and Larissa
      9D
    • What is the republic debate?
    • Australia has a system of government called a constitutional monarchy. This means that the Queen is technically the head of state, but we have our own constitution which limits her power to a minimal and ceremonial role. Within Australia, the Queen is represented by the governor general, who is appointed by the prime minister.
    • What republic does Australia want to be?
    • They want to become independent and have democratic freedom,have their own president of the country.
    • What is a Monarchy?
    • A form of government that is ruled by the royal family.
    • Will a republic make Australia more democratic?
    • Yes: Australia should perfect its democracy by becoming a republic. The only question regards whether people think it is a problem that Australia's process for selecting its head of state is undemocratic.
    • Is a republic important to Australian independence from Britain?:
    • No, Australians can vote to exit the commonwealth, but have chosen to remain. Australians have chosen to remain within the commonwealth. Therefore, they have not been denied independence in any way.
    • Is a republic more functional? Or does the monarchy "work just fine"?
    • That Australia's monarchy works does not make it democratic nor right. When something is wrong, it matters not that it works; it must be changed.
    • Will a republic make Australia more democratic? Is this important?
    • This is about Republican elitist politicians wanting to increase their power by eliminating checks on them from the monarchy.
    • Would a republic help stabilize Australian politics or is it the reverse?
    • Many Australians distrust the Australian political classes and believe the provision of executive powers to a local politician would result in an undesirably partisan head of state, and subsequent instability.
    • Thanks for watching ! ;d
