- : Now election policies should be believable. The Parliamentary Budget Office in Australia is helping to level the playing field in elections. It's modelled on the Congressional Budget Office in the US and allows the Opposition parties to have their policies independently and expertly costed so they are believable. Previously Opposition parties had to have their policies costed by Government departments that answer to the Government of the day or by independent groups that did not have the necessary systems to provide reliable information.
