About AGEC’s Election Scorecard
The Election Scorecard is based on an assessment of how each of the major parties measure up against the five Key Election Priorities set by the Australian Gender Equality Council and the individual components that make up each of those priorities.
The assessments have been made in good faith based on how the published party policies at the time of writing address AGEC’s published Key Election Priorities. Qualitative judgements are exercised in the measurement of likely impact of each policy initiative, having regard to multiple criteria, the scale of commitments, and the level of supporting detail.
AGEC’s Scorecard provides commentary for each of the major parties against each of the five Key Priorities.
