‘What if we were to change Australia from a Monarchy to a Republic’?: Whether or not to change Australia from a constitutional monarchy to a republic is being thought through and discussed by Australian Electors.
In contrast to other political realities like in Iraq, Afghanistan, Zimbabwe, Fiji or even the Vatican, the USA, India and China, the fact is that the Voters of Australia have been able to hold, without interruption, the ultimate constitutional power in Australia for over a hundred years!
It was crafted in Australia by our own people. It was a product, not of war nor of revolution, but of many years of business discussion, political debate, legal argument and peaceful referenda.
It was finally resolved at the third Convention that a republican model of an appointed president be put to the people in a constitutional referendum.
On 5 November 1999, the Electors of Australia were asked:
“Do you agree with A proposed law to alter the constitution to establish the Commonwealth of Australia as a Republic with the Queen and Governor General being replaced by a President appointed by a two-thirds majority of members of the Commonwealth Parliament?”
The result of the 1999 constitutional referendum, as decided by the Majority of Electors, was: NO.
Problem: In the adolescent brain the PFC is not yet developed. The PFC doesn’t fully come online until the midtwenties.
