ABOUT

The Australian Conservative Party is a mainstream right wing political party. We exist to represent the views of our members; conservative voting Australians.

We will contest elections in Australia's federal and state parliaments with two key policy platforms: the introduction of major democratic reform, and the preservation of Australian conservative values.

Democratic Reform — We will introduce The Democracy Solution into the Australian federal parliament. A package of ten major democratic reform policies that will shift the balance of Australian political power away from politicians, and towards the Australian people, and make Australia the most democratic nation in the world.

Conservative Values — We will advocate the preservation of conservative values that made Australia great, but in particular, conservative values that are increasingly at risk, such as our — freedom, democracy, sovereignty, security, capitalism, culture, and traditional Australian family values (this is not an exhaustive list).

The Australian Conservative Party is a truly democratic political party. It is controlled by the democratic will of our members, and we apply the same high democratic standards to the party that we advocate for our Australian parliaments.

As a party member, you will vote to preselect candidates, you will engage in policy formation and debate, and you will vote to approve the party's policy agenda.

If you are a conservative Australian, and believe we need to take control of Australia's future, we invite you to become a member of the Australian Conservative Party. To join or donate to the Australian Conservative Party, please click here.

PARTY ENTITY

The entity of the "Australian Conservative Party" is "Peter Wallace", operating as a political party under the name the "Australian Conservative Party", which is a registered business name with ASIC.

Under Australian law, when an election is called, the Australian Electoral Commission is required to cease activity on all party registrations. Accordingly, as an early election has been called for 2 July, the registration of the Australian Conservative Party is now on hold, and will resume after the election.

Also under Australian law, there is no requirement for a political party to be registered with the AEC. So operating as an unregistered political party is perfectly lawful. However, only registered political parties can nominate for election and be included on a ballot paper.

For this reason, Peter Wallace will be an independent candidate at the 2016 federal election. But for all matters other than nomination and candidacy at the election, Peter Wallace remains leader of the Australian Conservative Party, and if elected, will represent the party in the senate.

Once registered with the AEC, the party entity will automatically transfer from "Peter Wallace" to the "Australian Conservative Party", an organisation by virtue of its constitution, as registered with the AEC.

For party members, transfer of the party entity will be seamless, and all memberships will  automatically transfer to the new entity. Registration of new party members will continue at all times during the 2016 federal election campaign.

The party entity is currently:

Peter Wallace
Trading as Australian Conservative Party
ABN 92 564 723 749

Level 19, 1 O'Connell Street
Sydney NSW 2000
Australia
