We Need Truth in Political Advertising Laws

Australia Institute research shows that nine in ten Australians want Parliament to pass truth in political advertising laws.

Regulating the truth is not impossible. We already do it. Australian consumer law requires truth trade and commerce. South Australia has had truth in political advertising laws since the 1980s.

Australians want advertising to be truthful and transparent. They expect the media to self-regulate, and want laws that would penalise misleading and deceptive political ads with fines, forced retractions or losing public funding. 

Enough is enough. We need truth in political advertising laws passed now more than ever.

Add your name --

To the Parliaments of Australia –

Australians want advertising to be truthful and transparent.

Political advertisements that are deceptive and misleading interfere with the public's ability to make informed decisions.

We need truth in political advertising laws that are nationally consistent, constitutional, and uphold freedom of speech to be passed now more than ever.
