Fusion will recommend preferences based on other candidates’ alignment with our vision and principles. Fusion aligns with other parties that value action on the climate emergency, integrity in politics, pragmatic solutions to a stronger economy, justice, equity, and social responsibility.
It’s fair to say that we do not regard the current government as good or effective, and have created the party to provide voters with an alternative that reflects their views.
Previous Reviews: None as Fusion, however, some of their constituent parts have been reviewed by Cate in the past:

One Nation is number 4 across the board, followed by the Australian Federation and Australian Values Parties respectively. Curiously, no HTV card was provided for the ACT and NT.

Preferential Treatment

No, not that kind.

Preference cards are now becoming available – the ABC has a central record of them here – and so we’ve updated the parties that we’ve already covered with a look at their preferences, and if the preferences are available, they’ll be covered in any newly published posts too.

Information about preferences is now provided for the following parties:

Any party reviewed after the publication of this post will also have its preferences listed, assuming that they have provided them.
