Culleton sends petition to QEII, explains senators constitutional role
Former WA Senator Rod Culleton has informed his followers that he has closed off and posted his petition to the the Queen after receiving 12,000 plus signatures.
He also went on to explain a senators constitutional role through Odgers’ Australian Senate Practice manual which states:
To the electors of Australia who by their votes established and have sustained constitutional government in the Commonwealth of Australia and one group of their chosen agents and trustees, the Senators who hold a large portion of that trust.
The Senate and its constitutional role
The Parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia, which is given the power to make laws for the Commonwealth by the Constitution, has two elected houses: the Senate and the House of Representatives.
There are two reasons for this division of the law-making body, the legislature, into two houses. Both reasons have a long history, pre-dating the framing of the Australian Constitution by elected conventions in the 1890s.
The first is expressed by the term bicameralism, the principle that making and changing the laws should require the consent of two different bodies. The requirement for the consent of two differently constituted assemblies is a quality control on the making of laws. It is also a safeguard against misuse of the law-making power, and, in particular, against the control of one body by a political faction not properly representative of the whole community.Visit: Odgers’ Australian Senate Practice manual
Culleton also encouraged others to take out private prosecutions under s13 Crimes Act 1914 invoked through s7 Acts Interpretation Act 1901, against other government bureaucrats blatantly disregarding and usurping our law.
