Our organisation has been built with the blood, sweat, and tears of our members. Below are a handful of our committed volunteers, who handle day-to-day operations.
Australian Progressives is a party that aims to take our strong values and evidence based policy to parliament.
Australian Progressives are a party that is determined to learn from, and build on previous election results. We also want to celebrate the members of our community who have put their hand up to support the Progressive manifesto in parliament. Here are a list of former candidates who contested the 2016 Federal Election, the s.44 By Elections, and the 2019 Federal Election.
2019 Federal Election
All 3 seats in the ACT had Progressive candidates. The Progressives achieved an impressive 2% across the ACT at our first election.
The Progressives contested the Sunshine Coast seat of Longman, our first House of Representatives contest in Queensland.
The Progressives preselected local political oversight activist Angela Fulco to contest the Division of Sturt.
2017 Bennelong By Election
The Progressives contested the Bennelong by-election in 2017. We built on our 2016 Senate result of 43 votes in the Division of Bennelong to receive 425 Primary Votes. We came 10th out of the 12 candidates who contested the By Election.
2016 Federal Election
Australian Progressives contested our first election with the 2016 Federal Double Dissolution Election. A steep learning curve for our newly formed party, we placed ambition at the forefront of our campaign, contesting the Senate in NSW, Victoria, Queensland and South Australia, as well as the Federal Electoral Division of Batman in Victoria.
