NFP Governance Still Before Parliament
Thursday, 27th June 2013 at 12:58 pm

A Motion of Approval of the Governance Standards under the statutory obligations of the new charity regulator is still expected to go before Federal Parliament today despite the political drama of the past 24 hours.

In what will be the final sitting day of the House of Representatives before the next Federal Election, the motion is listed on the Notice Paper as one of the final documents to be voted on.

The swearing in of the new Labor Prime Minister Kevin Rudd at Government House this morning delayed the resumption of Parliament until midday today.

Those Federal Ministers who have engaged with the Not for Profit sector during the extensive reform process that saw the introduction of the Australian Charities and Not for profits Commission (ACNC) appear to have retained their portfolios.

The Minister for Social Inclusion, Mark Butler, the Assistant Treasurer, David Bradbury and the Minister for Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs , Jenny Macklin appear to have retained their portfolios for the time being.

Kevin Rudd was declared the new Labor Leader after a party spill motion on Wednesday night. As a result, former Prime Minister Julia Gillard has retired from Federal politics.
