Our party was formed in 1998 and since 1999, we have been registered with the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) as a Federal political party. We currently have just over 1,100 members.
The AEC conduct a review of how many members that we have on our membership books to confirm their membership.
As part of that review, the AEC directly contacts a sample of twenty (20) members of our party. This is generally done by phone. The AEC will ask these twenty (20) members if they are a member of our party. We have passed the previous AEC reviews in 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2012.
Sometime during the middle of 2015, the tri-annual review of our membership will be conducted by the AEC. This review needs to be successful. This is in order for our party to remain as a registered political party.
