United Australia Party – Australia’s biggest political party

The United Australia Party’s membership base has surged past 70,000, making it the largest political party in Australia, Chairman Clive Palmer announced today.

“Our party has now passed the 70,000 members, making our base larger than that of Labor, the Liberals and the Greens,” Mr Palmer said.

“The number of Australians joining under the leadership of Craig Kelly is unprecedent in Australia’s history,” he said.

Mr Palmer said the huge influx of members to the United Australia Party was a clear indication that Australian voters were fed up with the status quo of the major parties.

“Under the major parties, we are seeing families break up, the economy declining and an increase in mental health problems.

“At this time Australia needs a truly representative government, we need strong leadership and the United Australia Party is the only party that can achieve this,” Mr Palmer said.

“United Australia Party Leader Craig Kelly and myself have a strong resolve to justify the faith our supporters have shown.

“With a strong field of candidates and our many thousands of members behind us, we will do our very best to win the next Federal Election.”

Mr Palmer said more than 1000 members had already nominated as candidates for the upcoming Federal Election, in which the United Australia Party will be contesting all 151 House of Representative seats and Senate positions across Australia.

“Our nation is crying out for help and the time has come to stand up and make a difference. It is clear by huge numbers of people who have joined the United Australia Party in recent weeks that Australians are fed up and want to change and support our great country,” Mr Palmer said.

“I call on all Australians who have had enough of the major parties who have led our nation into such chaos to go to the United Australia party’s website and join us in this fight.

“Let’s take a stand and get ready for the upcoming election because we can never trust the Liberals, Labor or The Greens again.

“Under United Australia Party leadership, we will grow our economy, we will return freedoms to all Australians and we will govern by listening to our citizens.”
