In this year’s federal election, 48 members
of Congress have failed to compete for re-election.
They will accept defeat
and the economy will inevitably be affected.
The federal government will provide them with 15,000 dollars each
to help them step down from the glamorous Congress.
And return to a civilian life.
自由党的霍兰德(Mark Holland) 回忆起
The Liberal Party’s Mark Holland recalled that
he had failed in the 2011 election and said
he could not get up in a few days.
Fortunately, he made a comeback in 2015 and succeeded.
This year’s federal election was re-elected.
The federal government has provided
$15,000 to the outgoing MPs for a long time.
This taxpayer-funded program
can be used for a variety of purposes,
including paying for the retired MPs’ vocational training,
education, and travel expenses so that they can
return to the ordinary community and personal life.
Retired MPs need to submit a plan
to apply for this funding,
and their vocational training or re-educational learning
must be related to the work planned in the future.
Finally, you need to obtain a certificate of completion to receive the funds.
Not only is the defeated member of parliament,
but if the MP is not seeking re-election,
he also has the funds to apply for the 15,000 dollars.
