Queensland Parliament Passes Bill For Referendum To Introduce Fixed Four-Year Terms

The Queensland Legislative Assembly has passed a bill to enable a referendum to be held on the question of introducing fixed four-year parliamentary terms.

The referendum will be held in the new year. It will ask voters to approve a fixed four-year term for the Legislative Assembly. The new term would come into operation after the next election. Future elections would take place on the last Saturday in October.

Queensland has a unicameral (single chamber) Parliament consisting of just the Legislative Assembly. The Legislative Council was abolished in 1922.

This is the bill passed by the Assembly to enable the referendum:
