New party seeks a lo­cal branch

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

A NEW po­lit­i­cal party, Ma­ture Aus­tralia Party, in­tends to open a branch in the Moss­man-Port Dou­glas area soon, and pos­si­bly Ma­reeba.

The lo­cal con­tact is Mau­rie McKay of Wonga Beach who says he has had “quite a few peo­ple sign up”.

The party has a main­stream po­lit­i­cal plat­form “more at­tuned to the av­er­age Aus­tralian”, ac­cord­ing to Mr McKay. “It’s about a fair go for all Aus­tralians.”

The party was reg­is­tered two years ago and will field can­di­dates in the up­com­ing fed­eral elec­tion in var­i­ous seats na­tion­ally, though not in Le­ich­hardt this time.
