Senator REYNOLDS —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That the Senate-

(a) unanimously condemns recent public statements in which a minority Premier from the totally undemocratic Queensland electoral system can fraudulently claim to have a mandate from the Australian people to pursue his attack on the democratic tradition of this Parliament; and

(b) wholeheartedly rejects any attempt by the Queensland Premier to undermine the Australian democratic process merely to satisfy his personal ambition and protect the interests of his greedy supporters.
