After 17 nail biting days of political wrangling Australia finally has a government, and keeps its first female Prime Minister!
A labour majority was won last night, after 17 days of wrangling, when the 3 deciding votes were finally cast by independent MPs. and went in Julia Guillard’s favour, by one. labour will now form a minority government, which means that accountability and scrutiny will be at an all time high.
We do not yet know what impact the new minority labour government will have on migration law, however, the formation of a government will at least mean that the Department can now shift from a “caretaker” mode into a normal working mode. Hopefully this also means that the eagerly awaited State Migration Plans (SMPs) will also be released shortly.
