Party Games 22/54 Country Alliance

The Country Alliance is a rural issues party based in Victoria branching out into federal politics. They seem to me to be similar to the Nationals without the baggage of being part of the Coalition and less of a focus on agriculture and more on day to day life in rural areas. Because of this most of their policies focus on Victoria, but most would generalize to a national level.

They want less restrictions on fishing and hunting, better access to healthcare in rural areas, the elimination of the carbon tax, government departments relocated out of the major cities, doubling the number of boat ramps, greater prosecution of environmental protestors, tax concessions for business and people in rural areas, and a halt to privatization.

The Country Alliance is running for the senate in South Australia, Tasmania, and Victoria.
