Federal Election Lobbying Briefing-April 2022

May 2022

This briefing contains an overview of the corporate lobbying detected by InfluenceMap related to the federal election in Australia for the month of April 2022. InfluenceMap has detected three lobbying trends of note during April; the importance of the resource sector to jobs and the economy, opposition to carbon taxes, and hesitations around Labor’s proposed changes to the Safeguard Mechanism, each of which are discussed in more detail below. Overall, the resources sector appears to be the sector that is most engaged with the federal election, accounting for 70% of election-related evidence pieces in April.
