Are you left wing, right wing or centrist?


Members of the Australian Progressives might individually identify with a particular political position but as a political party, our progressive platform has been informed through our values as progressives. It is these values, not dogma or tribalism, which drive our policies and behaviours; evidence-based decision making, ethical behaviour, empathetic problem solving, empowerment across all communities, equality of opportunity and positive engagement with all citizens.

Whilst others may be tempted to describe our policies in terms of a political belief, we go where the evidence points us, focussed on the goal of building a community with a brighter, more compassionate and ambitious future. We will always support smart policy if the evidence and community sentiment supports it.
