"As the election is looming, the Labor Party has placed integrity issues
prominently on its party platform. Labor leader Anthony Albanese claims the
Morrison government cannot be trusted, and that the only way to restore
integrity is to elect a new government.

On the other hand, the Coalition government has downplayed integrity issues.
When questioned about his broken promise to establish an integrity commission,
Morrison said, “I’ll talk about what my priorities are: jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs
and jobs”, giving rise to speculation the Coalition is walking back from its
2019 election promise to establish an independent anti-corruption commission.

Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce has said most voters would not care that a
national integrity commission has not been established by the government.
Research suggests otherwise.

So, how has the Morrison government fared in corruption issues?"
