Ask your local councilor for such records – hmmm

However, remember that we are not a democracy (mobocracy) and don’t want to be. We voted in Referendums 1974 and 1988 to remain as a Constitutional Monarchy –    This is clearly stated in the Founding and Primary Law Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act 1901 as Proclaimed and Gazetted in Clause 2     The provisions of this Act referring to the Queen shall extend to Her Majesty’s heirs and successors in the sovereignty of the United Kingdom.

Chapter II – The Executive Government
61 Executive power
The executive power of the Commonwealth is vested in the Queen and is exercisable by the Governor-General as the Queen’s representative, and extends to the execution and maintenance of this Constitution, and of the laws of the Commonwealth. It has been put in a simple way and easy to understand.

It would seem that the creator of this presentation  doesn’t understand the importance of Seals …  see  https://www.larryhannigan.com.au/courts/seals-of-the-constitution/     but this below is a very good start for people.

Constitutional Monarchy – the best form of Gov’t after a Theocracy which will come before long and Prov 13.22 will come into effect.
