DARWIN, Australia (LifeSiteNews) — Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has expressed his support for a “pandemic treaty” that would give the World Health Organization (WHO) more power over its member states in the event of a pandemic.

Morisson made the comment at a Tuesday press conference in Darwin, as he was campaigning for his re-election in the next Australian federal election.

When asked whether he would sign a “pandemic treaty” which would “allow the WHO to direct countries in how they control pandemics,” should he be re-elected, Morisson replied that he has “always been supportive” of the idea.

“I’ve always been supportive right from the outset [and] was criticized heavily, mocked in fact by the Labour Party for saying that the WHO should have those powers and those authorities,” he replied.

“We’ll look at the text of all of that, but we have been amongst the countries that have been positive about these sorts of changes,” Morisson said.

“I think it’s only sensible that it’s an area of international cooperation … and I’ve been consistent on that,” he added.

Morisson’s comments come as more and more concerns are being raised over the nature of the so-called “pandemic treaty” currently being drafted by the WHO which some argue could represent a dangerous violation of the national sovereignty of the organization’s 194 member states.

German MEP Christine Anderson recently released two videos condemning E.U institutions for supporting the treaty and warning E.U. citizens about the potential outcome, arguing that “citizens will no longer have any political influence over whom [they] entrust with the administration of [their] fundamental rights.”

“With this [treaty], the rule of the people, which is the basic principle of any democracy, has been finally laid to rest,” she argued.

Similar concerns have been raised in the U.S., after the Biden administration sent the WHO extensive amendments to strengthen the organization’s ability to unilaterally intervene into the affairs of nations merely suspected of having a “health emergency.”

According to the WHO’s own website, member states will hold their first meeting on August 1, 2022 to “discuss progress on a working draft” of the new treaty.
