Since inception, Australia has been built upon the advancement of individual's rights and freedoms.
Katter's Australian Party believes it is the role of government to create and implement policy that advances individual’s rights and freedoms, and overall, maintains the Australian lifestyle and national identity. KAP believes government must make an additional, concerted effort to protect Australian sovereignty and independence.
In order to consistently achieve this, KAP seeks to maintain democratic representation federally, and support and propose policy that seeks to create opportunity in areas of education, employment, infrastructure and local business.
