Department of the Legislative Assembly, Northern Territory Government

Petitions and Responses

Petitions may be presented to the Assembly by any Member, subject to the requirements of Standing Orders. While it is an accepted convention for a Member to present a particular petition, the Member is not obliged to do so. The fact that a Member presents a petition does not necessarily mean that they endorse its content.

The Legislative Assembly of the Northern Territory is able to consider a petition only if a subject of a petition is within the scope of the Assembly's legislative or administrative power.
