Libertarian Party (Australia)


Libertarian Party (Australia)

The Libertarian Party is a small Australian political party founded in 2005 which purports to adhere to free market principles very similar to those of the United States Libertarian Party. The party claims members in three states but it is not registered [http://aec.gov.au/Parties_and_Representatives/Party_Registration/Registered_parties/index.htm] with the Australian Electoral Commission for elections due to its small size.

The current organization is unrelated to an earlier Libertarian Party of Australia that was organized in the seventies and folded in the late eighties.

The Libertarian Party's official platform takes a laissez-faire approach to economics and has very socially liberal policies on civil liberties. They adhere to the libertarian philosophy.
