Abstract

This chapter on ‘Political Participation’ deals with the form of political participation centrally contemplated by the Australian Constitution - electoral participation. As the High Court observed in Lange, the system of responsible and representative government under the Constitution seeks to ensure that such government is undertaken by those who enjoy the confidence of the people – and ‘(t)hat confidence is ultimately expressed or denied by the operation of the electoral process’.
