What is the Australian government?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The Australian Government is the party within the Lower House of Parliament with the majority of seats held. The government that holds the most seats nation wide becomes the 'Government of the day'. This, however, does not mean that they can pass what ever legislation they wish as they must also hold majority seats in the senate also (which is not usually the case). For Example - The Rudd government (although not very compitent) was elected they were The Government whilst Brendan Nelson at the time was the opposition leader.

The elected governmnet will have a cabinet made up of ministers that may be form the House of Representatives, or the Senate.
