appointed an Honorary Professor of Law at the Australian National University College of Law in February 2019.

I consider Mr Campbell to be a highly qualified candidate to undertake this role for the Assembly and trust that this view is shared by other MLAs.

In accordance with the legislation, we require a special majority of Assembly members to accept this nomination so that the government can implement the necessary processes for approval of campaign advertising.
