 1. Introduction.

The Non-Custodial Parents Party (Equal Parenting) was formed in Australia in 1998.

We are registered with the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) as a political party.

Our Party has a large membership base.

It largely consists of divorced and separated parents, their partners, grandparents, relatives, friends and anyone else who believes that children have a right to be cared for by both their parents.

Everyone is very welcome to join the Party – this is regardless of your background.

Membership is free.

2. Our Aims and Objectives.


The Aims of the Non-Custodial Parents Party (Equal Parenting) are both to

4. Report on the 2013 Federal Election.

We were happy with the Non-Custodial Parents Party (Equal Parenting)‘s results at the 2013 Federal Election held on 7 September 2013. Although our vote was not quite as high as in previous elections, we were able to obtain good publicity for our issues.

We thank everyone for their assistance.

The Non-Custodial Parents Party (Equal Parenting) had five (5) candidates in the Federal Election.

We contested two (2) House of Representatives divisions in New South Wales (Cunningham and Throsby) and one (1) House of Representatives division in Victoria (Flinders).

The Party also had two (2) candidates for the Australian Senate in New South Wales.

As noted above the number of votes for your party decreased at the 2013 Federal Election. However we believe that this was mainly as a result of the record number of candidates that contested the 2013 Federal Election -both in the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Overall, there were 1188 candidates for the 150 House of Representatives Divisions in the 2013 Federal Election. At the previous 2010 Federal Election, there had been only 849 House of Representatives candidates. This was a 40 per cent increase in the number of candidates.

Similarly, there were 529 candidates for the Australian Senate in the 2013 Federal Election. At the previous 2010 Federal Election, there had been a total of 349 Senate candidates. This was a 52 per cent increase.

We would have preferred to have candidates in all states and territories. However our limited resources prevented this from happening.
