Over 25,000 Victorians voted for the newly formed Victorian Socialists on November 24. A great result to build upon.
2018 Victorian state election
Australia has not had a socialist parliamentarian, at the state or federal level, since the 1940s. But this may change at the November 24 Victorian state election.
We have a chance to get a socialist elected to parliament. If we’re successful, it will be the first time since 1944.
The February 5 announcement that the Victorian Socialists — an alliance of socialist groups, including the Socialist Alliance — will contest the upper house in the upcoming Victorian elections flags a new, exciting opening for the left and progressive movements.
