NiE Political Points
Understanding how politics works is important because the government is responsible for the day to day running of our country making important decisions that affect us all.
Australians 18 years and over get to vote for the people and political parties who represent us and form our governments.
There are three levels of government in Australia. Some areas of responsibility overlap but generally Local, State and Federal Governments make rules about different things.
All three levels of government provide services within our communities. They raise money to pay for these services through taxes and charges.
