Nuclear Disarmament Party of Australia


Nuclear Disarmament Party of Australia

an Australian political party with its policy based largely on the issue of nuclear disarmament, formed in 1984 as the Nuclear Disarmament Party; deregistered in 1992; re-registered in 1998; deregistered again in 2009. Abbrev.: NDP
The Nuclear Disarmament Party was formed prior to the 1984 federal elections, at which Jo Vallentine won a Senate seat for the party in WA. Peter Garrett also stood for the Senate in the same election, losing by a narrow margin. Vallentine remained a Senator representing the NDP until 1990, thereafter representing a wider environmental coalition, including the Greens, until 1993. The party was deregistered in 1992 and in 1998 re-registered as the Nuclear Disarmament Party of Australia. It was deregistered again in 2009.
