The Australian political parties have been “completely compromised” and vote people in preselection who do not have the “public interest” and life experience, according to eminent law Professor David Flint.
“What we’ve seen in the Australian parties is that they’ve been completely compromised”, he told Sky News host Cory Bernardi.
“They’ve been taken over so that most of the pre-selections are not based on merit … but based on loyalty by the candidate to the particular powerbroker.
“We’re getting people into politics who don’t have the public interest to go into politics. They certainly don’t have the experience they should have.”
