Writ Issued For Queensland Referendum On Four-Year Parliamentary Terms

The Governor of Queensland, Paul de Jersey, has issued the writ for the holding of a referendum on introducing fixed four-year terms of Parliament.

The referendum will be held on March 19. It asks voters to approve a move to fixed four-year terms of the Queensland Legislative Assembly. If carried, the change would not affect the term of the current parliament but would take place after the next election. Future elections would be held on the last Saturday in November.

The writ is similar in function to the writ issued to initiate the holding of an election.
