New Political Parties and Logos

This section contains information for anyone wanting to find out more about registering a new political party or creating and registering a new political party logo.

Under the Electoral Act 1993 political parties are able to register with the Electoral Commission to contest parliamentary elections. Registration is not compulsory for political parties. Parties can promote the election of their electorate candidates at parliamentary elections without being registered.

Detailed information about registering a new political party or creating and registering a new political party logo can be found in the Party Registration Handbook.
