Labor has promised that their pledge of $ 525 million in additional aid to the Pacific and Timor-Leste will not be funded by cutting the rest of the Budget of the Official Assistant for Development (ODA).
Representative of the opposition on international development and the Pacific, Pat Conroyspeaks at a forum at the Australian National University.
Conroy argued that the government’s Pacific move up was “funded by a step down all over the world”.
He said Labor’s previously announced $ 525 million additional ODA for the region over four years would be in addition to the existing total ODA budget.
Conroy stepped through the elements Labour’s Pacific Policy, which includes a commitment to take the region’s concerns about the climate crisis seriously. He notes Scott Morrison and others in the government call the Pacific Islands a family:
Who needs a family if they openly ignore the problem you see as the biggest threat.
Conroy says Morrison says Coalition is aiming for a net zero by 2050, “but his coalition is hopelessly divided on it,” and Barnaby Joyce believes the goal is not mandatory.
In a broader sense, Conroy says the Labor government will increase funding for Australia’s NGO cooperation program, in which NGOs manage community projects, by $ 32 million over four years.

Sarah Hanson-Young believes that yesterday’s debate was so bad, now the debate needs legislation.
From her statement:
The Australian Greens will move in the next parliament to set up an Independent Debate Commission to oversee the live election debate, with the leaders ’debate last night again turning out to be a farce.
Green spokeswoman for media and communications Senator Sarah Hanson-Young said:
“Yesterday’s debate was tough and hurt voters.
“Those of us who have suffered from this have watched as two adult men – the so-called leaders – shouted at each other, interrupted, grinned and talked aggressively over others, including a female moderator.
“Australians should not be exposed to this obscene quarrel again. The election debate should be a competition of ideas and visions of our country, not a knock on the chest.
“We need an independent debate commission to oversee the official election debate. I will advocate for this in the new parliament.
There was a lot in this discussion that required fact-checking, however Scott Morrison The reverse ferret on his statement “it’s not a race” regarding vaccine purchases stands out.
It was Anthony’s race and we didn’t have to describe it that way.
Because for several months after that, Morrison refused to ever talk about buying the vaccine:
When we made these remarks, we talked about the regulation of vaccines. I’m not sure people know about it. ” [July 2021]
So he not only said that “we” (he) was wrong, but also throws in the spotlight how he tried to develop a comment in the following months.
More than 500 election booths have opened across the country.
Women’s Legal Service Queensland published his wish list for the election, stating:
Women’s services, especially those working in domestic, domestic and sexual violence, were horrified that little attention was paid to women, their security, financial independence, stability and justice in this election.
1. Immediate action to build more social housing and increase Centrelink benefits so that women can afford to rent housing and move to longer-term housing.
2. Urgently revise the Law on Family Law, especially the existing presumption of “equal joint parental responsibility”.
3. Expand access to justice by reducing the number of forms to be completed and funding the pre-emption process for vulnerable people.
4. Develop a new way of permanent residence to support women who have experienced domestic violence on temporary visas, including women who have children who are Australian citizens.
Prime Minister of Tasmania Jeremy Rockley received a positive test for Covid-19 and will be isolated for a week.
Rockley said he woke up Monday morning with mild symptoms of the virus and passed a quick antigen test.
“I have given a positive result to Covid-19 and will now follow health recommendations and isolate for the next seven days,” he said in a statement.
“Because of full vaccinations, including vaccinations, I feel good and will recover by working from home.”
Rockley attended NBL Tasmania JackJumpers grand final series match Sydney Kings in Hobart on Sunday afternoon.
He became the island nation’s 47th prime minister in early April Liberal Party voting number, after Peter Gutwein quit politics two years later in a senior position.
Meanwhile, health authorities have said that flu vaccination this winter is especially important as the coronavirus is still circulating in the community.
NSW Chief Health Officer Carrie Chant It was said last week that getting vaccinated against the flu is just as important as getting vaccinated against Covid-19 as flu cases are exacerbated with the fact that international borders are recovering in two years.
In recent weeks, the number of flu cases in New Wales has more than doubled to 1,024.
Question: Dominic Perrote says minority government is good for democracy. Do you agree?
I want a Labor government of the majority. This is my position, and I will work 76 times a day … I think there should be 150 Labor in the House of Representatives. This is my starting point. I don’t think we can make it. But my goal is 76. Thank you very much, see you in Adelaide.
And the press conference is over.
Question: Last night and you and you Scott Morrison. Did you mention last night the frustrated voters what they want to do with two leaders shouting at each other?
Scott Morrison there was nothing to say but shout. He only had smears and that grin in it all.
Last night I came up with ideas for cheaper childcare. Our ideas on reducing electricity bills and combating climate change, our ideas on how to do more things here, our ideas on improving living standards through practical measures to increase wages.
Our plans for more affordable housing, to address these issues, be it social housing or our purchase assistance program.
This is a positive policy that we put forward. I ask you to think about what were the policy measures that Scott Morrison said he would do on his fourth term if elected?
If he is given another three years, we cannot afford another three years of the same, another three years of slander and intimidation. That’s all there is to this power. In their newspaper publications, it is fascinating to report that Labor has an extra-budgetary program to build social housing using interest from the Australia Future Fund, when all they have is a lack of time and ideas.
Question: You went to the polls promising to raise wages, given the fact that inflation will be twice as high as wage growth, or isn’t that a huge hole in your central platform that you won’t be able to fulfill? do you promise now
Not at all. There are two approaches to wages in this election. Scott Morrison and his government, who want low wage growth to be a key feature of their economic architecture, they said.
They made it clear that the former Minister of Finance and Labor, who understands that we do not want people to be left behind, we do not want people’s living standards to fall, and this is our approach.
We therefore support wage increases for older workers. That’s why we want to change the definition of how industries like gender issues work, so of the 21 that were taken in recent years, and in 2012, there was only one successful case – you asked a question and now you get the answer.
That’s how it works. In 2012, we, as a Labor government, successfully applied for the Social and Community Service Award.
This has led to increased wages, forcing community sector workers to work in the sector. This has led to higher wages, especially for women in the sector. That’s what we did.
We will continue to take practical measures that matter, including the same work, the same pay and only one difference that I cannot understand this government. The government had a bill in parliament that banned the theft of wages and found it a crime, and they revoked it. They recalled him, although he had great support.
It all speaks to this power. At the same time, they had legislation that wanted to get rid of the common test. You want to get rid of the overall test from the best position only if you don’t want people to be better overall.
Question: You were last night [said] negative transmission is good. This is the exact opposite of your party’s policy from the last election. You did not support this policy and simply did not speak out? Does not the negative transfer contribute to overheating of the housing market?
We were not successful in the last elections. We have come up with the best housing policy we are adopting in this election.
Question: According to your economic plan, Labor’s spending plans include increasing the country’s debt by another $ 52 billion to pay for your climate change programs and affordable housing. Given that the deficit will increase by $ 10 billion under the leadership of your government, does it threaten your attacks on countries Coalition over the farm and do you undertake budget repairs?
They despair, don’t they?
Here we have costs on the same basis as the National Broadband Network, the clean energy financial corporation they tried to abolish.
It is an investment that pays off. You have extra-budgetary commitments only if it pays off for the government. For example, our housing fund Australia Future Fund will invest $ 10 billion through the Future Fund, which, incidentally, was created, and Peter Castello and others were appointed, and the interest will be used to invest in social housing. This is good politics. It makes sense, and it will matter.
