ACT Legislative Assembly


Members

Members of the Assembly are elected by the Hare-Clark proportional representation system. Canberra is divided into five electorates —  Brindabella, Ginninderra, Kurrajong, Murrumbidgee and Yerrabi. Five members are elected in each electorate, making a 25 member Assembly.

All members have electorate and parliamentary responsibilities; those who belong to political parties also have party responsibilities. Some members, such as the Speaker and ministers, have additional responsibilities. The type of work members do is influenced by many factors including:

  • whether they are in government, or opposition or are members of the crossbench;
  • their parliamentary status; and
  • the seniority or authority they have within their own party.
