The National Committee of the Australian Protectionist Party is pleased to announce the registration of the Party with the Australian Electoral Commission.
“The decision by the AEC to register the Party is a positive step following several years of hard work by members creating websites, party publications, branches and the general foundation of the party with which we intend to contest future elections” Mr. Phillips said.
The Australian Protectionist Party was formed to give voice to the concerns of Australians ignored by all the major parties. A socially conservative organization, the Protectionist Party seeks to represent traditional Australia at a time when the philosophies of economic rationalism and globalization are having a drastic effect upon our nation’s economy and identity.
“Protectionists recognize our nation cannot continue down the current self-destructive path upon which politicians have placed us” Mr. Phillips continued, “Our manufacturing sector has been decimated, our primary industry sector is continually assaulted by poorly-planned Free Trade Agreements – all the while Australians are forced to watch their jobs and taxes flow overseas.”
“For too long, Australians have been denied a voice to express their concerns about issues such as national sovereignty, government expenditure, immigration and the protection of Australian jobs and our way of life” Mr. Phillips said. “The vast majority of politicians have ignored the national interest, preferring instead to pander to the whims of well-funded and highly-publicized special interest groups.”
“The formation of the Australian Protectionist Party seeks to redress this imbalance”.
