Far-right party seeks ACT toehold (Australia)

An extreme right-wing nationalist party is seeking to boost its presence in Canberra as it makes a bid to be registered in time for the federal election.

The party, founded by renegade Labor MP Graeme Campbell and spearheaded by contentious nationalist Jim Saleam, is holding a private meeting in Queanbeyan today.

The party supports restricting foreign ownership, reducing and limiting immigration, strengthening the traditional family and ''abolishing multiculturalism'', according to its website.

Dr Saleam, the party's nominal national spokesman, said public notice of its intent to register with the Australian Electoral Commission was imminent barring an ''absolutely marvellous objection'', and the territory had been identified as another possible foothold.

But he acknowledged the history of nationalist organisations in the territory was ''not a happy one''.

''There's a bit of a sub-culture of nationalistic groups that have operated in the ACT over time, and as a general rule they've never had any particular profile,'' he said.

But he argued there were still Canberrans who would identify with the party's far-right doctrine.

''If Australia First got established in the ACT it would have a definable base, a different social base to other groups in the ACT,'' he said.

''And that would be rather inevitable I suspect.''

ACT Greens Senate candidate Lin Hatfield Dodds said while the party recognised Australia First's right to a political voice, their platform resembled ''the politics of fear''.

''We would fight for the right for those voices to be heard, and then we would have a conversation about the value of some of those voices,'' she said. ''It all sounds to me like the politics of fear. The Greens are actually interested in the politics of hope. Do we want to be a country that is guided by justice and compassion, or ... a country driven by fear?''

The Australia First Party's capital push follows moves to have the party registered for this year's federal election, and similar efforts by the Australian Protectionist Party.
