Sustainable Australia (NSW)

Sustainable Australia is launching a NSW party in 2017, to contest the state election on 23 March 2019.

Why?

By far the best chance for the party to gain a Parliamentary seat in the next election cycle is the NSW State election.

The quota for a NSW Upper House (Legislative Council) seat is 4.5% of the State vote. By comparison, it is 14.3% for the Senate in Federal Parliament. A party will likely win the last seat if it gets half a quota on first preferences, around 2-2.5% of the vote.

We will achieve this if we get registered.

Please join today - we are offering free membership for a short time only!

Sustainable Australia (NSW) will be campaigning on secure jobs, affordable housing, better planning and a sustainable environment. Sustainable Australia is the only party to offer the choice of a 'Better, not bigger' Australia including a clear policy to end our Liberal/Labor/Greens-engineered rapid population growth. More policy detail here.

To achieve NSW State registration and contest the March 2019 election, we need to lodge our application - with over 750 NSW members - 18 months ahead (by October 2017) due to strict party registration guidelines.

Importantly, the Australian Electoral Commission (covering Federal elections) and the NSW Electoral Commission (covering State elections) are separate bodies and require separate application processes!

FAQ

Why is the manual NSW membership form required? This is a requirement of the NSW Electoral Commission to demonstrate that you are a genuine member (one of 750+ in NSW) for State election registration.
