The Federal Leader of the United Australia Party, Craig Kelly, and party Chairman Clive Palmer, have called for the abolition of state governments to save billions of dollars and improve efficiency.

UAP leader Craig Kelly could be on a winner by getting rid of state governments

“Australia is over-governed and over-legislated. We have far too many politicians and a duplication of roles,” Mr Kelly said.

“State politicians are out of touch. Increasing resources and expanding local governments would be a far better alternative for delivering meaningful and effective government to all Australians.

“Getting rid of unnecessary state governments would turn Australia into one efficient nation, comprising a federal government and expanded local councils.

“The duplication of departments and activities would be eliminated and the savings resulting from not paying the salaries and expenses of hundreds of needless politicians could be much better spent on improving services and the livelihoods of all Australians,” Mr Kelly said.

Clive Palmer has called for a referendum on abolishing state governments to be held at the same time as the next Federal Election.

“It is time for Australia to decide on whether they want a more unified and efficient system or to continue with wasteful, ineffective state governments,” Mr Palmer said.

“The United Australia Party wants a referendum on this issue so all Australians can have their say,” Mr Palmer said.
