Abstract

In this article, we explore the implied freedom of political communication's (`implied freedom's') application to executive power at the Commonwealth, State and Territory levels. We propose that the proportionality test used by the plurality in McCloy v News South Wales(1) be adapted to executive actions affecting the implied freedom. We then illustrate our proposed approach by applying it to the case of Chief of the Defence Force v Gaynor.(2)
