Scott morrison defends his multiple ministries during a speech to the house of representatives

7NEWS Australia published this video item, entitled “Scott Morrison defends his multiple ministries during a speech to the House of Representatives” – below is their description.

The vote to censure former prime minister Scott Morrison passed the House of Representatives today, 86 votes to 50.

It follows the former prime minister’s secret appointment to multiple ministries during the pandemic.

During the debate, Scott Morrison stood up in parliament and defended his actions, saying he had to make urgent decisions during an extremely challenging period. Saying that if someone got really sick or died from COVID he needed to be able to make decisions in that portfolio. Mr Morrison says no powers were exercised under the authorities, except in one circumstance. He conceded, in hindsight, that some appointments were unnecessary.

He said, technically, that he didn’t do anything wrong but apologised for the secrecy.

In This Story: Vote

Voting is a method for a group, such as a meeting or an electorate, in order to make a collective decision or express an opinion usually following discussions, debates or election campaigns. Democracies elect holders of high office by voting. Residents of a place represented by an elected official are called “constituents”, and those constituents who cast a ballot for their chosen candidate are called “voters”. There are different systems for collecting votes, but while many of the systems used in decision-making can also be used as electoral systems, any which cater for proportional representation can only be used in elections.

In smaller organizations, voting can occur in different ways. Formally via ballot to elect others for example within a workplace, to elect members of political associations or to choose roles for others. Informally voting could occur as a spoken agreement or as a verbal gesture like a raised hand or electronically.
