A po­lit­i­cal party founded by con­tro­ver­sial Dutch politi­cian Geert Wilders will be in Kar­ratha to­mor­row evening spruik­ing its mes­sage ahead of the Federal elec­tion.

The Aus­tralian Lib­erty Al­liance is in the mid­dle of a na­tional tour, with re­gional res­i­dents able to meet the party’s WA Se­nate can­di­dates Deb­bie Robin­son and Mar­ion Hercock.

Mr Wilders is well known for his op­po­si­tion to Is­lam and has been crit­i­cised for his views by Aus­tralian politi­cians, in­clud­ing WA Premier Colin Bar­nett. ALA bills it­self on of­fer­ing a “con­ser­va­tive al­ter­na­tive for vot­ers who are con­cerned about Is­lam in Aus­tralia”.

Mrs Hercock said peo­ple at­tend­ing the meet­ing could ex­pect to hear about the party’s plat­form, which she said was based on smaller, smarter gov­ern­ment and stop­ping the “Is­lami­sa­tion” of Aus­tralia.

The lo­ca­tion and time of the event is yet to be re­leased.
