CMC investigates allegation of electoral bribery — 29.03.2011

The Crime and Misconduct Commission has begun a misconduct investigation into an allegation that Liberal National Party (LNP) President Bruce McIver offered an inducement to a current sitting LNP member not to nominate as a candidate for the next state election.

It is alleged Mr McIver offered Member for Mogill, Bruce Flegg, the position of Queensland’s Agent General in London under a future LNP government if he vacated his seat to allow the Lord Mayor of Brisbane to contest it.

If the allegation being examined by the CMC is proven, it would amount to bribery under section 98C of the Criminal Code.

The CMC’s decision to investigate has been made in the public interest on the basis of maintaining public confidence in the state electoral system.

No further details will be publicly provided while the investigation is ongoing.
