Assange to run for senate

Plans to set up an Australian WikiLeaks party are "significantly advanced", according to the organisation's founder Julian Assange

Mr Assange has told Fairfax Media he intends to run for a Senate seat at the next election.

He also claims a number of very worthy people admired by the Australian public have expressed interest in standing for a yet-to-be registered Australian WikiLeaks party.

Fairfax reports a draft party constitution has been prepared and is being subjected to legal review.

Party registration with the Australian Electoral Commission requires confirmation of at least 500 members listed on the electoral roll.

Mr Assange has told Fairfax he hasn't yet registered to vote, but believes he'll be able to register in either NSW or Victoria as an overseas voter.

Blog comments Your Say

  • The next federal election could be very interesting if as suggested there will be three new parties vying for seats.
    The Katter Party, the Clive Palmer Party and the WikiLeaks Party.
    Hopefully Labor and LNP are a spent force. About time we had someone else to vote for. I can't wait.

  • This would make for some interesting Question Time.
    The respect that Julian Assange has amongst the Geek community is immeasurable.
    Watch the support for Julian snowball.
    In Australia, we like the underdog, the one who cuts down the tall poppies is usually considered a hero of the people.
    Julia Gillard has already tried and convicted him several times over without proof .
    This the woman who has the audacity to denounce others that do the same. (Peter Slipper, Craig Thomson)
    Why did she not use her usual "Thats a matter for the courts to decide"
    No she joined the global lynch mob and went after him with her pitch fork and torch burning.
    JULIA GILLARD , YOU ARE A NASTY PIECE OF WORK.
