Our Principles and Core Values...

Many Australians have lost faith in politicians and political Parties.  And that is not hard to understand when they just seem to be serving their own interests.

 

Principles

Australian Voice holds four principles dearly:  Integrity, Accountability, Transparency and Democracy.  All four are missing in many political Parties today.

♦ INTEGRITY

We believe that people should come first, rather than political Parties or the pecuniary interests of candidates or Members of Parliament.  Therefore, membership in Australian Voice revolves around service to our communities rather than promoting the self-interest of individuals or the power of political Parties.

No Australian Voice candidate shall have a pecuniary interest in any community organisation which relies on Government or community funding.

All Australian Voice candidates undertake to represent the interests of their respective electorates without fear or favour, subject to their own personal consciences on moral or ethical issues and subject to the published Platform of the Party.

♦ ACCOUNTABILITY

Australian Voice is committed to seeking honest and accountable Government at all levels for the benefit and long-term future of all Australians.  We believe that all elected representatives, whether on Local Authorities, or in State or Federal Governments, are representatives of the people who elected them and should therefore be fully accountable to the people.

♦ TRANSPARENCY

Australian Voice believes that all decision-making processes of elected bodies should, wherever possible, be open to public scrutiny and debate.

♦ DEMOCRACY

Australian Voice believes in grassroots democracy and in the principles of Citizens' Initiated Referenda.  We aim to implement these concepts both within our own organisation and within the broader Australian community.


Core Values

Our "Core Values" are the fundamental values that are woven into our Constitution and which guide the direction and policies of our Party.

  1. Australian Voice believes that Australia is an independent, sovereign nation accountable to its own people but with an obligation to play a positive and peaceful role in the global environment.
  2. Australian Voice believes that no Australian land should be owned by foreign citizens, corporations or other interests.
  3. Australian Voice recognises that Australia's mineral wealth is a finite resource which belongs to the nation and to its people.  As such, it needs to be managed for the benefit of all Australians and not exploited by a minority or for the benefit of foreign interests.
  4. Australian Voice is committed to seeking honest and accountable Government at all levels for the benefit and long-term future of all Australians.
  5. Australian Voice believes that people should come first, rather than political Parties or the pecuniary interests of candidates or Members of Parliament.
  6. Australian Voice believes in grassroots democracy and in the principles of Citizens' Initiated Referenda.  It aims to implement these concepts both within its own organisation and within the broader Australian community.
  7. Australian Voice supports candidates who undertake to represent the interests of their respective electorates without fear or favour, subject to their personal consciences on moral or ethical issues, and subject to the published Platform of the group.
  8. Australian Voice believes that all public hospitals, schools, roads, railways, port facilities, airports, electricity generation and distribution networks, gas distribution networks, water conservation projects, and community water supplies belong to the people and should be efficiently managed by entities controlled by and accountable to the people.
  9. Australian Voice recognises the traditional family unit as the fundamental building block of our society and is therefore committed to restoring and upholding traditional family values based on our Judeo-Christian heritage.
