Australia First Party will contest the eastern Melbourne seat of Deakin on September
14. The party raised its flag there in the 2010 poll.
Our candidate will be Mr. John Carbonari who was a Councils’ candidate for the party
in Maribyrnong in 2012. He polled 5.34%
Deakin is an ultra marginal Labor seat. In accordance with our general attitude, the
party preferences the sitting member last.
Eastern Melbourne is now afflicted with the population-led push to high rise and
business hub development.
Australia First stands up for local heritage and the preservation of sensible urban
living. It rejects the plan to explode the population of Greater Melbourne to six millions, a single merged urban sprawl from Geelong to Packenham.
