Why Isn’t There a Political Party Based on Monarchism?

Answer

This is something the League has looked at for some twenty years. The problem is, if say the AML became a political organisation, we would lose most of our active members who are members of the Liberal, National and Labor parties. We also have members of the Greens, the Christian Democrats and possible other parties. Most political parties have rules that members cannot be members of another political party. The other downside is that if we stood as a monarchist party and didn’t get many votes, because approximately two thirds of monarchists are Liberal/National voters and one third, Labor voters, this would be seen by the media, which are almost totally republican, as indicative of a low vote for the Monarchist cause itself.
