Roles for a National Anti-Corruption Commission advertised by Attorney-General’s department

A federal ICAC was a key promise from Labor during the election campaign.

The promise of a federal corruption commission was a major talking point during the federal election campaign, and already it appears the new government is getting to work on delivering it.


In the 2019 election, the same promise was made by ex-Prime Minister Scott Morrison - something that the then-government failed to deliver on, before taking a heavily criticised model to last month’s election.


Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus was sworn in just days ago.


Now, his department has started advertising jobs for a task force to help establish a federal National Anti-Corruption Commission.


The task force would be providing advice to the Government on how to embed establish and design a National Anti-Corruption Commission, as well consulting with external stakeholders.


Whether or not it does turn out to be a "kangaroo court," as some have suggested - we will have to wait and see.
