Pirate Party Becomes a Registered Political Party In Australia

First time accepted submitter norpy writes “The Australian branch of the pirate party has today announced that their registration as a political party has been successful. According to the announcement the party will now turn its attention to selection of candidates and development of policies for the upcoming federal election. ‘Organising and validating a membership database to then submit to the AEC for the purposes of registration is a daunting task. Fortunately, we had a team of volunteers who were prepared to spend many weekends ensuring that the list we sent to the AEC was entirely valid, and I thank them for their effort,’ said Brendan Molloy, Secretary of Pirate Party Australia.”
