A view of the legal debate

  • Geoffrey Palmer

Abstract

What is proposed amounts to a substantial constitutional change. It can be seen as a shift in power away from the executive branch of government towards the courts. The legitimate source for this shift of power remains unclear. To be successful, constitutional changes have to be enduring. I do not detect any widespread public consensus on the issues surrounding this set of changes.
