Progressive Labour Party (Australia)


Progressive Labour Party (Australia)

The Progressive Labour Party (PLP) is a minor political party in Australia. The party is a broad left-wing party started by, among others, dissident former members of the Australian Labor Party in 1996. The party alleges that Labor has abandoned its traditional working-class supporters as it has moved towards the political right in recent years. The party ran Senate tickets in New South Wales and Western Australia and contested several House of Representatives seats at the 9 October 2004 election.

The party regularly makes submissions to Senate and other committees on a broad range of issues.
