Integrity in politics shouldn't be up for negotiation. That's why the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) exists: to hold politicians to account.
However, Dominic Perrottet is refusing to guarantee independent funding for this critical body. Just this week, the Deputy Leader of the NSW Liberal Party claimed that ICAC was “wasting our money.”
If elected, a NSW Labor Government will guarantee independent funding for the ICAC to ensure it can continue its important work unencumbered. But we can’t afford to wait until 2023.
