Lebe Malkoun asked: We have recently seen an investigation into claims the NSW Labor Party attempted to mask a large donation from a Chinese property developer. It’s an example of how money and power appear to provide access to our leaders in order to influence particular agendas. Australia prides itself on its democratic society, however, both major parties in Canberra have resisted calls to make political donations more transparent and in real time. Why are the major parties reluctant to provide full transparency to every day Australians on who is donating money to them?

Q&A is a television discussion program that focuses mostly on politics but ranges across all of the big issues that set Australians thinking, talking and debating.

It is driven by interaction: Q&A provides a rare opportunity for Australian citizens to directly question and hold to account politicians and key opinion leaders in a national public forum and Q&A is broadcast live so that not only the studio audience but also the wider audience can get involved.

We aim to create a discussion that is constructive, that reflects a diverse range of views and that provides a safe environment where people can respectfully discuss their differences.

It’s impossible to represent every view on a single panel or in one audience but we’re committed to giving participants a fair go.

In order to be as inclusive and diverse as possible, the program is presented from a range of locations around the country and all Australians are encouraged to get involved through social media as well as by joining the audience.
