Zali Steggall, Independent Member for Warringah, is interviewed in this informative podcast where she talks about the value of independents and the growing Voices of movement around Australia.
Independents bring scrutiny and diversity into parliament and force the major parties to collaborate and consult to develop better policies and legislation. They play an important role in holding government to account and are directly answerable to their electorate.
Independents also raise the capability and integrity in parliament. Zali encourages communities to work together to find their best candidate and unite behind them.
