The 21st Century Australia Party is an independent Australian political party formed by "controversial spruiker"[2] (the description given to him by the ABC) Jamie McIntyre. The party's policies include reviewing the necessity of state government to reduce Australia's political system to two layers rather than three and reviewing certain taxes.[3]

The party was founded in March 2013 by Jamie McIntyre, who was investigated by the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) from 2002 to 2007; ASIC agreed to discontinue the proceedings in 2007 after he repaid investors.[4][5][6][7]McIntyre says his objective is to create "an abundant, prosperous 21st century economy, for all Australians to fairly share in the massive wealth our large nation (Australia) can provide".[8] The party was launched at Glen Innes RSL on 22 April 2013, It aimed to field candidates in most of the 150 lower house seats of the 2013 Federal election,[9] but was unable to be registered before the deadline.[10] The party was registered with the Australian Electoral Commission on 7 November 2013.

History

Jamie McIntyre founded the party in March 2013 and announced that he would challenge Tony Windsor for the New England seat. McIntyre comes from a farming family in New England, New South Wales and owns several rural holdings in the area.[11]
