Who We Are
Principle is something seriously lacking from Australian politics outside of the KAP and has been for some time. However, Katter's Australia Party MPs and candidates are part of a Party founded on a strong set of principles and values.
Issues surrounding the freedom for Australians to enjoy their way of life and personal freedoms, the protection of Australian jobs and industries, are all part of KAP's commitment to 'do the right thing' by Australians.
Our Core Values and Principles are the basis of selection of all of our MPs and candidates. Our MPs agree to vote in accordance with these Core Values and Principles, in the best interests of their electorates and consistent with their conscience.
Borrowing from one of our most iconic symbols, the 8 point star used by Katter's Australian Party was first used at the Eureka Stockade in the mid 1850's. A century and a half later, KAP looks to this moment for inspiration as we fight for our individual rights, personal freedoms and a fair go for all.
Katter's Australian Party intends to change the direction of Australian prosperity through job creation, establishment of infrastructure and support for Australian-owned businesses. Another major desire is the restoration of personal freedoms that have been unnecessarily eroded over recent decades. There is a massive task ahead, but Australians have never shied away from a job that needs to be done.
For the challenging task ahead of Katter's Australian Party, a strong, committed team of people has been assembled to lead the charge. Brave people tried and tested in the trenches and true believers in the cause.
