The Liberal Party of Australia

Summary

Website: www.liberal.org.au
Social Media: FacebookTwitterInstagram
Slogans: Stronger Economy. Stronger Future.
Themes: You can’t trust Labor
Look at everything we’ve done for you (but not too closely)
You can’t trust Labor
Electorates: Upper House: All states
Lower House: Almost all electorates
Preferences: The Coalition’s preferences are an interesting balancing act. There’s the obvious pandering to Clive, with the UAP coming in at 2, followed by a desperate scramble to find fellow right wingers who aren’t batshit crazy. This leads to Derryn Hinch’s Justice Party getting the number 3 slot, followed by the Liberal Democrats at 4, the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party at 5 and the Australian Democrats at 6. UAP aside, these are among the more moderate parties to be found in the centre and right of our spectrum. It’s also notable that every last one of them is a past or current Parliamentary party, at least at a state level (in the case of the SFF).

Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party

Summary

Website: www.onenation.org.au
Social Media: FacebookTwitter
Previous Names: One Nation
Pauline Hanson’s United Australia Party
Slogans: We’ve got the guts to say what you’re thinking
If you want to change the government, change who you send there
Themes: Oppose vaccine mandates. Reduce immigration. No Net Zero. Protect and restore “the individual rights and fundamental freedoms of all Australians”.
Electorates: Upper House: Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria & Western Australia

Lower House: Barton, Bass, Bendigo, Berowra, Blair, Bonner, Bowman, Braddon, Burt, Calare, Capricornia, Casey, Chifley, Cook, Cooper, Cowan, Cowper, Corio, Cunningham, Dawson, Dickson, Dobell, Durack, Fadden, Fairfax, Fisher, Flinders, Forde, Forrest, Fowler, Franklin, Fraser, Gippsland, Goldstein, Groom, Hinkler, Hume, Hunter, Indi, Isaacs, Leichhardt, Lilley, Lingari, Longman, Lyne, Lyons, Macarthur, Maranoa, McEwen, McPherson, Melbourne, Monash, Moncrieff, Newcastle, Nicholls, Paterson, Pearce, Rankin, Robertson, Scullin, Shortland, Spencer, Warringah, Wide Bay & Wright

The website proudly proclaims that One Nation will be standing in all 151 Lower House seats across Australia, so presumably there are still some candidates to be announced.

Preferences: One Nation’s How-to-Vote card is frustratingly opaque. Rather than name parties, it advises voters to vote for the alphabetical letter designated on the ballot. In Victoria,  that means the Australian Values Party is number 2, followed by the Liberal Democrats and United Australia Party. Shooters, FIshers and Farmers, and Australian Federation Party round out the top 6. The other states have the Liberal Democrats at number 2, and IMOP gets a look-in in Queensland at number 5. The exception is Tasmania, who places Independents Day and Amadino ahead of the Liberal Democrats. In Western Australia, Australian Values Party is number 2.

Citizen’s Party

Summary

Website: citizensparty.org.au
Social Media: FacebookTwitterYouTubeVimeoSoundCloudLinkedIn
Previous Names: Citizens Electoral Council of Australia
Slogans: Citizens taking reponsibility
Themes: Banks are bad unless they’re the ones we want.
Electorates:

Upper House: New South Wales, Northern Territory, Queensland, South Australia and Victoria

Lower House: Chisholm, Cunningham, Hawke, Lingiari, Mallee, Nicholls, Robertson & Sydney

Preferences: Preferences now available here. Short and sweet: second place to Shooters, Farmers and Fishers, third to One Nation, fourth to the Greens, fifth to Reason and sixth to the Australian Values Party. So basically, a vote following this is going to help elect a Green. I would not have predicted that.

Informed Medical Options Party

Summary

Website: imoparty.com
Social Media: FacebookTwitterInstagramYouTubeTelegram
Previous Names: Involuntary Medication Objectors (Vaccination/Fluoride) Party
Slogans: Vote 1 Free Choice
Themes: Medical ‘freedoms’! All the medical ‘freedoms’ (except the ones we don’t like). But not just medical ‘freedoms’. Honest.
Electorates: Upper House: Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria and West Australia</ br>
Lower House: Canning, Capricornia, Eden-Monaro, Fairfax, Herbert, Hunter, Leichhardt, Lilley, Lindsay, Macquarie, Moncrieff, Newcastle, North Sydney, Parkes, Paterson, Richmond, Robertson and Wide Bay
Preferences: IMOP’s preferences are in lockstep with their own policies, with specifics varying from state to state. The Great Australian Party comes in at number 1 in Victoria, followed by the Australian Federation Party. Anti-vax Reignite Democracy Independents Smit and Jonas are at number 4, One Nation at 5, and the United Australia Party brings up the rear.

Liberal Democrats

Summary

Website: www.ldp.org.au
Social Media: FacebookTwitterYouTube
Previous Names: none, but sometimes referred to as The Liberal Democratic Party
Slogans: Low Taxes. Small Government. Individual Responsibility.
Fighting for less government and more freedom
Themes: Get the government out of your business
Electorates: Upper House: New South Wales, Northern Territory, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and West Australia
Lower House: Aston, Ballarat, Banks, Bass, Bendigo, Bennelong, Berowra, Blair, Boothby, Braddon, Brisbane, Bruce, Capricornia, Casey, Chifley, Chisholm, Clark, Corangamite, Corio, Cowper, Cunningham, Deakin, Dickson, Dobell, Dunkley, Eden-Monaro, Fadden, Farrer, Fenner, Flinders, Forde, Fowler, Franklin, Fraser, Gellibrand, Gilmore, Gippsland, Goldstein, Greenway, Grey, Higgins, Holt, Hotham, Hume, Indi, Isaacs, Jagajaga, Kooyong, Lalor, La Trobe, Lilley, Lindsay, Lingiari, Longman, Lyne, Lyons, Macarthur, Macnamara, Macquarie, Maribyrnong, Mayo, McEwan, McMahon, McPherson, Melbourne, Menzies, Mitchell, Monash, Moncrieff, New England, Nicholls, North Sydney, Page, Parkes, Parramatta, Paterson, Petrie, Reid, Richmond, Riverina, Robertson, Ryan, Scullin, Shortland, Solomon, Sturt, Wannon, Wentworth, Werriwa & Whitlam
Preferences: The Liberal Democrats have chosen a small grouping of fellow travelers, leading off with United Australia and One Nation, followed by Morgan C Jonas at number 4. The Australian Federation Party and Australian Values Party bring up the rear, and it’s saying something that the AVP are probably the least crazy group in this listing.
