SA Election 2018: A stunning state debut for the Animal Justice Party
The 2018 South Australian election is the first for the Animal Justice Party as a registered political party. We contested the Federal Election in 2016, but the SA election was our first at state level; and it was a stunning debut.
The vote counting is far from over, but there are enough votes counted to be certain that we have done spectacularly well! You can see a fuller explanation of our results here.
AJP-SA is very proud of our team, pictured above with our lead candidate, Angela Martin.
You can find out more about each candidate, why they want to be a voice for the animals in parliament, and how they did in the counting:
- Angela Martin, who stood for the SA Legislative Council.
- Wendy Davey, who stood for the SA Legislative Council.
- Millie Hammerstein, who stood in Croydon
- Louise Pfeiffer, who stood in Kavel
- Geoff Russell, who stood in Florey
- Nick Hancock, who stood in Port Adelaide
