Queensland Elections to Be Delayed

Queensland Elections to Be Delayed

Doubts over the date of election has begin to brood as the Premier, Ms. Bligh has said that the elections won’t take place prior to the publication of the results of Queensland Flood Commission of Inquiry. Ms. Bligh said that the people have the right to know as to what has been done so far for the benefit of the people hit by Queensland flood.

It is believed that the report over the inquiry would be out by the 24th of February, which means that the elections would be delayed. Ms. Bligh was reported as saying, “I certainly want Queenslanders to know what the flood inquiry says before they make their assessment at the ballot box. The most desirable outcome is for people to see it first”.

It has been informed that the publication of the report was scheduled on the 24th of February and therefore, it could not be published earlier. An interim report was released on 1st of August, 2011. In the report, precautionary steps and measures were listed which would be taken up at the time of yet another flood. Today, a meeting was held by the cabinet. Today’s meeting was the first meeting of this year.

Meanwhile, it has come to light that Queensland would be implementing the national curriculum for the students. It has been informed that as per the new curriculum, the students would be introduced to complex biology and science in their earlier classes.

The curriculum would be transparent and every parent would be made aware of the subjects which their kids would be studying in the class rooms. The curriculum thus implemented would be introduced to 735,000 Queensland students. The changes in the curriculum have been made with the effort of improving the standard of education.
