Hi Maxim, thanks for your question.
While most bills – proposed laws – are introduced by government ministers, other members of parliament can introduce their own bills. These bills are known as private members' or private senators' bills. If the opposition introduces a bill which the government does not support, it is unlikely that bill will pass the House of Representatives as the government can use its majority in the to vote against the bill.
