MELBOURNE, Australia — The Australian Sex Party recorded its best ever vote in last Saturday’s Niddrie suburb election.

Coming within 500 votes of the Greens, Sex Party candidate Amy Myers, a gold trader with experience in the adult industry, reportedly stole away votes from all other parties.

The organization said its vote in Victoria has been steadily climbing since it first registered for the 2010 federal Senate election and received 2.2 percent of the vote.

In the four Upper House regions it contested in the 2010 State Election, the party polled 3.8 percent and recorded 4.7 percent in Western Metro. In the Broadmeadows area election last year, the party‘s vote garnered 5.2 percent, and in Niddrie, it’s expected to total somewhere between 8–9 percent.

Party President, Fiona Patten said that with 49 percent of voters in Niddrie registering as Catholic in the 2006 Census, the electorate had one of the highest religious constituencies in Australia which made the Sex Party vote even more significant.

“Our policies are starting to appeal to a broad cross section of young and young-at-heart Australians,” she said. “Amy Myers is a smart, young women who has a completely different take on law and order, finance, drugs, entertainment, personal freedom and healthcare from that of the other parties. She represented ‘progressive politics’ in Niddrie, regardless of ethnic and religious conviction.”

Patten noted that voter levels of support for the party were encouraging for the next Senate election.

She added, “Our policies are smart and intelligent but right outside the conservative square that the major parties operate from. An increasing number of young, intelligent and cynical voters are turning away from the old style policy portfolios of the two major parties, seeing them as irrelevant to running a modern country like Australia.”

Patten thanked the increasing numbers of volunteers stepping up to help the party and said she was receiving support from some very creative thinkers who would test organizers in the established parties.
