Review of the 2022 Federal Election

22 December 2022

The Federal Executive of the Liberal Party of Australia has received the final report of the Review of the 2022 Federal Election.

I would like to thank Brian Loughnane AO and Senator the Hon Jane Hume and the many people who assisted, including Liberal Party members and supporters who made over 600 submissions.

The Review is thorough and forward looking. It makes 49 recommendations relating to: the parliamentary team; Party structure; executives and memberships; pre-selections and candidates; demographics; and campaign preparedness.

While acknowledging the Party has a numbers of strengths, the Review also makes frank assessments about where we can do better.

While the election result in May was disappointing, the Liberal Party is determined to rebuild and offer Australians the strongest possible alternative at the next election.

The Federal Executive will carefully consider the Review and its recommendations, with a clear focus on making our Party stronger and returning to Government.
