Jody Wilson-Raybould is the latest MP to sit as an Independent in the Commons.

Citing electoral reform and Indigenous reconciliation as her priorities, how is Wilson-Raybould going to reach her goals in Parliament? She plans to support progressive legislation and attempt to improve or oppose bills that are not strong enough. Wilson-Raybould says, ‘It is important that we look at the nature of politics and how decisions are made,’ stating that members of Parliament should not be responsible to the prime minister or their party leader or unelected people in the Prime Minister’s Office.
