Employees and elections
NTPS employees play an important role in the Northern Territory's good governance by supporting the government of the day.
As a Territorian, you are also able to participate in elections, but it is very important that your political activities or stances do not conflict with your role as an NTPS employee.
NTPS employees intending to participate in elections should read and understand the following information:
- guidelines and procedures for public sector employees during election times
- candidates for elections
- contact from candidates and their staff
- how will an election affect my work
- making public comment
- use of information gained through employment .
Your agency human resources section should also be able to provide more detailed advice should you require it.
