Become a Candidate

Stand up for your country alongside One Nation

CANDIDATE APPLICATION PROCESS

           
Thank you for showing an interest in becoming a Pauline Hanson's One Nation candidate.

If we want change in politics we must stop asking for it and we must do it. By putting your hand up you're making an effort to improve your country, state and community. The major parties have lost their way and have forgotten about ordinary Australians, that's where you come in.

Issues like rampant crime, protection of our farmers and agricultural industry, drought and water security, asset sales and ridiculous government bureaucracy through red and green tape remain unsolved because politicians are afraid to stand up and listen to what the people want. They are afraid of and bow to the political correctness brigade instead of spending their time focusing on solving the problems facing everyday Australians in our communities.

People are sick of the finger pointing and blame game.They want change. They want to be heard. We need you to stand up as a representative in your community and take the fight of everyday Australians to Parliament with honesty, transparency and integrity.

If this sounds like something you can do, please fill out the candidate application at the bottom of this page.

FAQS

Q: How much does it cost to be a candidate and to run in an election?

A: The minimum spend will be your application fee to the party of $150 plus the relevant Electoral Commission nomination fee (currently $250 for QLD State Elections) plus the cost of your minimum advertising materials obligation.

Q: How much time do I have to spend campaigning?

A: The amount of time spent campaigning is the candidate's decision. However, the result is going to be significantly dependent on the effort and time that goes into campaigning. If you make the decision to become a candidate, you don't want to be wondering what, "could have been" had you dedicated a few more hours each week to the campaign.

Q: Is being a candidate a paid position?

A: No. One Nation is a minor political party and does not have the funds pay people to stand as candidates. All One Nation candidates campaign because they truly care for their community and want to make a difference. If One Nation receives substantial donations, we are happy to help with campaign promotional costs.

A: Yes, One Nation provides candidates with information and training so that they are empowered throughout their election campaign. One Nation also has office staff, a candidate management committee and also our leader, Pauline Hanson, available to guide our candidates. You will be provided with assistance in artwork design for advertising material as well as guidance on Facebook campaigning and Electoral Commission requirements.

The only thing you will need to have before becoming a candidate is a good work ethic and your passion to serve the community, One Nation will give you everything else.
