Which people (jobs) are connected with each level of government?
Thanks for your interest in the three levels of government—an important part of how Australia is governed. The three levels are:
- the federal – Australian – Parliament
- state/territory parliaments
- local councils/shires
Many people are involved in the work of each level of government. For example (note each state parliament has their own position titles):
- Australian Parliament: Governor-General, Speaker of the House of Representatives, President of the Senate and the Serjeant-at-Arms
- State/territory parliaments: Speaker of the Legislative Assembly, Usher of the Black Rod and Speaker of the Legislative Assembly
- Local councils/shires: Mayor, Council President and councillors
