What We Stand For
A fair go
All Australians deserve a fair go, and Katter’s Australian Party stands for policies that make this happen.
Putting Australia’s interests first
Governments are accountable to the Australian people for the management of outcomes that protect and enhance both the social and economic fabric of the Australian people and the sovereignty and independence of the Australian nation.
Making sure regional and rural Australia gets its fair share
Katter’s Australian Party is sick of seeing capital cities get more than their fair share while regional Australia is expected to contribute but gets little to nothing in return. KAP fights to make sure regional and rural Australia get their fair share of funding.
Modern Australia was founded on Christian values and a responsibility to one’s fellow man. This heritage belongs to all Australians and defines the culture of the nation. The ideals for Australian society and government should be based upon these principles.
Encouraging the development of every person’s talents and skills
Katter’s Australian Party believes in creating policies and thus an environment that nurtures individual initiative, and the development of every person’s, and especially children’s, talents and skills to the maximum.
Personal responsibility and accountability
Katter’s Australian Party believes in policies that acknowledge the importance of personal responsibility and accountability.
The importance of contributing
To make Australia the best it can be, the value of contributing cannot be underestimated.
Support for those in genuine need
While Australians are in genuine need, they should be supported, while that need exists. This does not absolve people of the need to support themselves, wherever that is possible.
The right for property owners to enjoy their property
Government interference in people’s lives must finish at the family fence or property boundary. Legislation overriding all other laws must provide that intrusion and interference upon that household can only occur where human health and life is in serious and immediate jeopardy.
Protecting Australia’s sovereignty and independence
To ensure we protect Australia’s sovereignty and independence, we need a strong economy, have a defence force strong enough to deter invasion, and put Australia’s interests first in respect to agricultural land, corporations, resources and utilities.
