Re-registration of The Australian Greens - Victoria

Wednesday 25 November 2020

For immediate release

The Australian Greens – Victoria was re-registered as a political party under Victorian electoral law today.

As required by section 58A of the Electoral Act 2002, the party applied for re-registration on Thursday 22 October 2020.

To be registered, a party has to have at least 500 members on the Victorian electoral roll. The VEC confirmed this by writing to the members whose names were provided by The Australian Greens – Victoria.

As a registered political party, The Australian Greens – Victoria will continue to: 

  • have the party name printed next to its endorsed candidates’ names on ballot papers
  • be able to nominate all its candidates centrally with the VEC instead of with individual election managers
  • be entitled to public funding (if it gains enough votes), and
  • be entitled to enrolment information (which it can only use for specified purposes).
