The Registrar of Political Parties is responsible for the registration of political parties under the Political Parties (Registration, Conduct, Funding and Disclosures) Act 2013.
It is the Registrar’s responsibility to ensure that a proposed party’s application meets the criteria for registration before granting approval.
As part of this process, the Registrar reviews submissions from members of the public objecting to the registration of the proposed party. The Registrar must determine if these submissions are made on legitimate grounds (as in sections 6 and 8 of the Act) and consider them as part of the final decision whether or not to register the party.
