Concerned about the influence of religion in Australian government?
The Secular Party of Australia is the first and only Australian political party whose chief objective is a liberal, secular democracy for this country. We want all Australians to enjoy freedom of and from religion.
The Secular Party will contest the 2013 federal election on 14th September. Information concerning candidates and preferences will be available on this page over the coming months.
Unlike the other parties the Secular Party is:
- Both socially and economically liberal
- The only party that stands for comprehensive secularism. We fight for the separation of religion from state institutions, impartiality between religions and the protection of human rights from violation on the basis of religious doctrine.
The Secular Party of Australia became a federally registered political party in the months before the 2010 federal election. Now we are growing and plan to achieve registration for state elections.
