New party seeks a local branch
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.
