Double dissolution

Apr 12, 2016

Q: The Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has announced that he intends to recall Parliament in April to pass legislation to re-establish the ABCC (Australian Building and Construction Commission). If the Senate rejects the bill to restore the ABCC, or the Senate fails to pass it, would you approve or disapprove the Government calling a double-dissolution election?
