This is the Victorian Liberal Party’s review of the 2014 State Election.
The review is titled: Good Government for Victoria. It was put together by Dr. David Kemp, a former President of Victorian Division of the Liberal Party and the former federal member for Goldstein.
The review’s Advisory Panel consisted of: Donna Bauer, Andrea Coote, Russel Howcroft, Amanda Millar, Hugh Morgan, John Roskam and Julian Sheezel.
The Liberal-Nationals government of Denis Napthine was defeated after just one term in 2014, winning 38 seats out of a possible 88, a net loss of 7 seats. It was elected under the leadership of Ted Baillieu in 2010.
In its introduction, the Review says: “The major conclusion from the Review is that there must be a comprehensive change in the way the party goes about its business. It needs to become an organisation facing not inwards, but outwards. It needs to become an accessible community organisation, welcoming and open. Liberals need to engage better with each other and with the external world. The Liberal Party will not win the 2018 State election, nor be as successful as it must be in the 2016 Federal election, unless it is prepared to revitalize its approach to politics, to transform its campaigning and to engage with the electorate and with each other.”
