Today the Science Party and the Australian Cyclists Party announce they are forming a coalition to contest the upcoming Federal election. Both parties have come together to press for changes in priorities across issues that other parties are ignoring or failing to address adequately. By working as a coalition both parties seek to increase their appeal to more voters and to extend their base of support at the upcoming election.
We’re heading for an economic disaster because of the poor planning of current and previous governments. According to ANZ Banking, the AUD could go to US 50 cents. With official interest rates at 1.75%, there is little value in holding Australian currency. If we maintain interest rates at this level or cut them further, the dollar will go down further.
Many Australians are unaware of the restrictive nature of abortion laws in most states and territories. Abortion must be made legal, safe and accessible to protect the health of Australian women. Doctors must not be criminalised for providing a health service.

The Science Party has announced a smorgasbord of technologically and scientifically driven candidates for the 2016 election who threaten the Liberal Party’s plan to frame themselves as the innovation party. The team announced include scientists, technologists, startup founders, educators, businesspeople and consultants to the government.
In 2007, Malcolm Turnbull, as Minister for the Environment and Water, decided he would try to end the drought. A noble cause, but he used $11 million of taxpayer money to trial a technology without scientific merit. What makes it even more frustrating is that trial wasn't conducted scientifically, so the experiment was a complete waste. Ian Woolf has provided us with a transcript of his show on Diffusion Science Radio.
The Science Party has announced today the creation of a new government position Chief Memeologist and the associated department The Bureau of Memeology in it's "Dank Meme Innovation Statement".
Our proposed 13th principle.
With the election coming up soon (as early as the 2nd of July 2016), we need to settle on who will be representing the Science Party at the federal election. We will be running for both the Senate and the House of Representatives.
The Science Party has a strong platform and we believe that we will be competitive in the upcoming federal election. Our principles are a very clear indication of what we stand for, and we will run on core ideals innovation, education and economic reform.
If you're interested in running as a candidate for the Science Party, please read the information below and email [email protected] by 5PM Tuesday 5th April 2016 indicating that you would like to run so that we can involve you in the selection process.
