With Australians heading to the polls this weekend, we asked the three people contending to be the next Commonwealth Attorney-General to outline their visions and priorities for human rights and justice in Australia.
Here’s what they had to say...
Mark Dreyfus QC, Labor MP and Commonwealth Attorney-General: Building on Labor’s human rights record
George Brandis QC, Liberal Senator & Shadow Attorney-General: Reclaiming human rights from the fury of ideologues
Penny Wright, Greens Senator and spokesperson for legal affairs: Autonomy and certainty for the legal sector
