Assange to run for senate

Date

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.
