The movement from a British colony to the independent and proud nation of Australia took place at the turn of the 20th century. This was not a quick change and it was not a result of one singular factor or event. Many factors and events contributed to the Federation of Australia in 1901. Federation was influenced by the people of the nation, and their decision and thoughts on uniting of the colonies. Before Federation, the colonies of Australia were not one country. They had different railways, different defence forces and even identities. Federation meant that the colonies of Australia – Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and Western Australia – would unite into one country. They would have the same currency, government and identity. Federation was a major turning point in Australian history,

Australian federation was a main turning point in Australia’s history, not so much for it’s camaraderie and sprit, but to legislate and retaliate against three main concerns that had arose in our developing nation; Australia’s defence, immigration and trade. With the introduction of Federation to Australia, all three problems were fixed, and much more.
Georgia’s governor which is Nathan Deal is in the executive leadership in Georgia, as for the president of these United States he is the Executive Chief of all the states including Georgia. The Governor of Georgia does not have a cabinet, but our president of the United States does have a cabinet. Georgia’s governor is considered weak compared to the other governors nationally (Chitwood notes). The governor of the United States can serve two four year terms whereas the president of the United States serve eight years in office. Like the president the governor of Georgia is responsible for submitting a yearly budget. However, the governor does have the power to appoint members to eight boards and commissions.
To introduce, Australia was country solely owned and run by Britian until 1901, the year of Australian federation, from 6 separate self-governing colonies to one, on the 26th day of January 1901. ’While Federation was not perfect, it was a system (of both laws and beliefs) that enabled Australia to flourish.’ The question itself represents the states coming together as one uniting nation. The laws, the beliefs, the privileges and the embellishment of the phrase gives you a sense of welcoming into the history of Australian federation.
The Australian Constitution is a rich amalgam of various classical political principles. The concepts of the Rule of Law and the doctrine of the Separation of Powers evident in Montesquieu’s Spirit of the Laws are both salient examples of political theses that are central to Australian Constitutional Law. The structure of the Constitution itself and decisions of the High Court of Australia unequivocally validate the entrenchment of the doctrine separation of powers in the Commonwealth Constitution . In particular, the High Court has applied this with relative rigour with respect to the separation of judicial power. The separation of the judicial power is fundamentally critical to upholding the rule of law. The High Court in Wilson v Minister for Aboriginal Affairs noted that “the separation of the judicial function…advances two constitutional objectives: the guarantee of liberty and, to that end, the independence of Chapter III judges” . Kitto J in R v Davidson also identified that the judiciary should be subject to no other authority but the law itself . This is a critical aspect ensuring the concept of legal equality is upheld. Therefore, its role clearly extends to providing checks and balances on the exercise of power by the legislative and executive arms of government . This ensures the liberty of the law and limits the abuse of the judicial system. Judicial Power is defined as “the power which every sovereign must of necessity have to decide between its subjects
Gregg Abbott was born and raised in Texas. In 1984 he served as state trial judge in Houston, TX and became a paraplegic when a tree fell on him while he was jogging. In 1996 Governor George Bush (R) appointed Mr. Abbott (R) to the Texas Supreme Court where he served for eight years.

Australia’s government design was taken from the British Westminster system after those who originally colonized Australia. A functional, western style democracy, there are a number of minor political parties operating in Australia but the country’s federal politics is an essential 2-party system at present, much like the United States (Our Country, 2015).
While all members of the parliament have an equal vote in decisions that are made by the parliament, there are three individuals or groups that have more influence than the others. These are the prime minister, the members of the government ministry and the members of the government cabinet.
Here in Perth, we are having new inner-city developments that everyone is looking forward to. These developments are fantastic and will bring more tourism and vibrancy to the Perth City. However, a problem that they have is the possibility of destroying the river through increasing turbidity, higher temperatures and more acidity. This is why Perth and its people need fifty million dollars, so that we can protect the Swan River while still being able to build new developments.
In the regional government, each of Australia’s states is administered by a parliament, which consists of a legislative council, and a legislative assembly. The premier is the leader of the political party dominating the legislative assembly. Each state runs its own schools and hospitals, administers its own laws, and has its own police force.
