VICTOR Kline sat down with Redaction Report with one clear message – Australia must be rid of the Labor-LNP duopoly.
The parties have ruled for too long in such a dishonest manner, The New Liberals Leader said – and it’s time Australian voters tried something different.
Whether it be Modern Monetary Theory, a federal anti-corruption commission or candidates who aren’t career politicians, The New Liberals are certainly doing things differently ahead of the next Australian Federal Election.

To Kline, the inspiration is Liberal Prime Minister Robert Menzies. The current Liberals are a world away from the former Australian PM – and aren’t “liberal” in any sense of the word. That’s why he spearheaded the creation of the new party.
But they’re not only aiming to be a protest vote. Australia’s preferential voting system allows fringe parties to be put on top of the voting list without any chance of a vote being ‘wasted’. It means that the party, only formed in 2019, is immediately hoping for seats in the Australian parliament.
