Gold Coast City Council election

Overview

This public inquiry investigated allegations that Gold Coast City Councillors had breached the Local Government Act 1993 by:

  • misleading voters
  • failing to disclose election gifts
  • failing to declare material personal interests.

In the course of the inquiry, we published an issues paper and asked for public submissions on whether existing Queensland legislation sufficiently maintained the integrity of the local government electoral process.

We used the results of the investigation to propose recommendations for improving the integrity and conduct of local government councils.
