I'M INTERESTED

WE NEED INDEPENDENTS

The major parties are not meeting our community's expectations. They’re too occupied with vested interests, factional power struggles and the demands of the party faithful.

We can choose something different at the October 2024 ACT Election.

We can choose a new kind of politics, carried out by a new breed of politician committed to hearing every voice, finding common ground and developing evidence-based solutions that serve the greater good.

That's the community independent approach.

This approach will give us representatives who are there not because they've been elevated by a few powerful hands operating behind closed doors, but because they've been put there directly by the community – representatives who are answerable only to the people they've been elected to represent.
