Request for New Members

Would you consider joining the Non-Custodial Parents Party (Equal Parenting)?

Membership is free.

The Non-Custodial Parents Party (Equal Parenting) is one of the few political avenues that we can use to try and change the current unfair and inequitable Family Law and Child Support system in Australia.

The Non-Custodial Parents Party was formed in 1998 by Andrew Thompson in an endeavour to change the way our laws are drawn up. The Party is not just based in New South Wales. It is Australia-wide. The Party has contested the last six (6) Federal elections in 2001, 2004, 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016.

The Party seeks to minimise any government interference in decisions that affect the parents and children of separated families. The Party also seeks to maximise the initiative of individual parents to make and be accountable for decisions that affect the future of their families.

Every three (3) years the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) audits the minor political parties. The next audit is scheduled for the middle of 2017.

This audit will check to make sure that our membership list is genuine. (The major political parties are considered exempt from this audit because they have at least one member (and probably more) in Parliament).

As part of the audit process, we have to submit a list of 500 names of our members to the AEC every three (3) years. The AEC picks out twenty (20) names at random and telephones these people. The chance of you being selected is very remote.

Attend Liberal Democratic Party Conference

We have agreed to speak at the Liberal Democratic Party  National Conference on Sunday 2 February 2014.

The venue is Rydges Camperdown, 9 Missenden Rd, Camperdown. NSW. 2050.  Registration commences at 9 am and formal proceedings at 9.30.

The LDP has invited about 5 parties to give a 15 minute presentation on their core issue and to recommend a suitable policy approach by the LDP.

The LDP Senator-Elect will be in attendance.

This will in no way impinge upon the independence of our Party or our policies.

Request for Candidates

Hi to Everyone

Request for Candidates and/or Volunteers for the Non-Custodial Parents Party (Equal Parenting).
The forthcoming Federal Election will be held on Saturday, 14 September 2013. The Federal Election is one of the few avenues where we can show the major political parties that family law issues are important.
Would you consider running as a candidate for the Non-Custodial Parents Party (Equal Parenting)? (Note: You would need to be an Australian citizen).
Give out “how-to-vote” cards on the day of the Federal Election.
Our target is to run, at least, two (2) candidates for the Senate in the each of the six (6) States and the two (2) Territories. We also aim to run candidates for the House of Representatives.
We have had a good response to our previous request for donations.
However, if you wish to run as a candidate, we would have to ask you to pay your own candidate deposit ($2,000.00 for the Senate and $1,000.00 for the House of Representatives). We may be able to help out with printing costs.
The time and date for the AEC close of nominations is 12 Noon Thursday 22 August 2013. (Note: Prior to this date, AEC nomination paperwork would have to be signed, by either the Party’s Registered Officer or the Deputy Registered Officer).
The NCPP(EP) web-site links can be found at:
These links include details on candidates, party history, preferences, policies, etc
While the chance of one of our candidates being elected is very remote, candidate costs are tax deductible.
Your assistance and support would be very much appreciated.

2013 Federal Election

The Non-Custodial Parents Party (Equal Parenting) will be running candidates at the 2013 Federal Election on 14 September 2013.

Report on the 2010 Federal Election


We will be running candidates in the 2013 Federal Election. This is to be held on 14 September 2013.

We thank everyone for their assistance in the 2010 Federal Election. We were quite happy with the increased level of support that we received from the electorate.

We only contested seats in New South Wales this time around. In the past, we have usually had candidates in at least four (4) states of Australia. However due to the lack of time and resources, we were restricted to NSW for just this 2010 Federal Election.

Our vote in NSW has steadily increased since the 2007, 2004 and 2001 Federal Elections and the 2002 Federal By-Election.

For example, our 2010 Cunningham result has increased by 2 1/2 times since the previous 2007 result. Our 2010 Throsby result is even higher than our 2010 Cunningham result (Throsby was not contested in 2007).

This indicates that the electorate is being increasingly more aware of our issues.

Details of the present and some earlier NSW results are provided below:

Cunningham (Wollongong. NSW) 2010 Federal Election results – 1,240 votes (our candidate was John Flanagan).

Throsby (Shellharbour, NSW) 2010 Federal Election results – 1,595 votes (our candidate was Wayne Hartman)

Our NSW Senate Vote in 2010 was 3,616 votes (our candidates were Andy Thompson and Roland Foster)

In comparison, some of  our previous NSW Federal Election results* were:

Cunningham 2007 Federal results were 489 votes (our candidate was John Flanagan).

Macarthur 2007 Federal Election results were 306 votes (our candidate was Andy Thompson).

Cunningham 2004 Federal Election results were 355 votes (our candidate was John Flanagan).

Parramatta 2004 Federal Election results were 777 votes (our candidate was Alex Peniazev).

Cunningham  2002 By-election results were 556 votes (our candidate was John Flanagan).

Senate – NSW 2007 results were 2538 votes (our candidates were John Geremin and Roland Foster).

Senate – NSW 2004 results were 2932 votes (our candidates were Grahame Marks and Andy Thompson).

Note: * Our party also contested Senate seats in Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia in 2004 and 2007.
