Anne Twomey is Professor of Constitutional Law in the Sydney University Law School. She is a leading authority on constitutional issues.  

In this interview with  Professor David Flint, she explains the constitutional and other legal issues relating to recall elections.   

Following an undertaking made during the 2011 election, the  New South Wales O'Farrell government commissioned  a report on the subject.

This is presently under consideration by the NSW government.

Recall elections were discussed here in a consideration of the reserve power of the Australian Crown vested in the Governor-General ( and indeed the Governors) to dismiss the government on constitutional grounds: "Reserve Powers, Recall Elections".
