Representation was the central focus of the Phase 2 Community Consultations. Given this entity will be a Representative Body it is critical that the design of the entity considers carefully how people are represented and who has a voice.
In support of this eight (8) questions were asked to explore three primary components of representation (please see the full report for discussion on the eight questions):
- Voting: who can vote and how is voting organised
- Candidacy: who can be chosen as candidates and how
- Electorates: how people are nominated to be on the representative body (voting boundaries)
The data for the responses for each question are outlined below:
Each of the graphs outline the percentage figure that captures the frequency that each response to each answer for each question was selected across the total questionnaires we received. As a result of the Phase 2 Community Consultations Parts of the representation model element have been answered, however, due to the complexity surrounding representation further work needs to be done to finalise the candidate nomination process and the voting structures. These will need to be discussed further with the Aboriginal Community.
