Sex Party's Clout Rises After Victorian Election

MELBOURNE — The Australian Sex Party vote in the Victorian Upper House has almost doubled following the state election.

From an average vote of 2.2 percent in the last Senate election in Victoria, the party’s vote in the regions it contested, rose to nearly 4 percent.

The party said it recorded the highest vote of minor parties and independents in three out of the four upper house regions it contested.

Party president and candidate in the Upper House region of Northern Metro, Fiona Patten, said that for a party that had been registered for only one month in Victoria to double its federal vote, was a tremendous outcome.

“The implications for the Sex Party’s vote at the next Senate election are very encouraging," she said.

The Sex Party waged a campaign against Labor Minister for Gaming, Tony Robinson, over his curbs on adult entertainment and also ran a strong campaign against the Greens candidate in Richmond, Kathleen Maltzhan, who personally supported prosecuting clients of sex workers.

Patten said that the most gratifying result was outpolling all three Christian parties (Christian Party, Family First and DLP) in all Upper House seats that the Sex Party ran in.

“We also recorded a much better vote than the religious parties in 15 out of 17 lower house seats that we contested,” she said.

“The Sex Party’s pledge to get religion out of politics is one small step closer to becoming a reality after this election although religious affiliations and networks run deep in both major parties these days."

Patten said that the Sex Party would look at running candidates in local government elections and that the first Victorian by election would be keenly contested with Sex Party preferences going to the party that had the best civil liberty and personal freedom track record.
