In Brief: Labor Party in ACT to Hold Annual Conference

The Labor Party in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) is holding its Annual Conference today just months before elections for the Legislative Assembly, reports the Austrlian Broadcasting Corporation. 

Criticism of various government policies, initiatives and forced changes suggests that the election will be a very close affair.  Amongst such contentious issues include key policy areas of health and education such as the cuts to teaching positions and changes to conditions that are arguably crippling the Territory’s teaching force and inflicting significant damage to morale within the profession. 

The ruling Labor Party had largely responded well to their mandate to govern; however, a growing reluctance to adequately and openly consult with the public on some matters has shown cracks.
