Here’s the pledge in full:
I pledge my vote for a fairer world.
- The first budget of any new Government should restore the most recent $224m aid cut to “stop the clock” on aid dropping to the lowest level ever
- Poverty eradication in the communities of greatest need should be the primary purpose of aid spending
- The Government should commit to ongoing increases to the aid budget to ensure we’re on track to meet our global promise of 0.7% of Gross National Income to Australian aid
