Australia to Get New State?


Australia: The Northern Territory may be heading for another tilt at becoming a fully fledged Australian state, with the Statehood Steering Committee beginning a major education campaign on the benefits of statehood.

The Northern Territory originally fell under the governance of South Australia. In 1911, governance passed to the federal government. It wasn´t until 1978 that the territory was given self governance, albeit without some of the powers of a state.

A referendum on statehood failed by a very narrow margin eleven years ago, but many voters didn´t understand what the change would mean. The committee´s primary message is that Territorians should have the same rights as other Australians.
