Palmer Makes His Move

Clive Palmer announced in Brisbane today that the Palmer United Party had changed its name
to the United Australia Party.

Mr Palmer said that the United Australia Party was established at a time when the nation
needed stability early last century and was the party of choice by Australian Prime Ministers
Joseph Lyons and Sir Robert Menzies.

“Its re-establishment today marks a significant milestone in the history of Australian politics,’’
Mr Palmer said.

“All Australians are tired of our current crop of politicians. It is time to unite the country for
stronger economic growth that can restore prosperity to all our citizens,’’ he said.

Mr Palmer confirmed that the United Australia Party will be contesting the next Federal
election in the House of Representatives and the Senate, and will be seeking to implement
policies to benefit all Australians.
