Pauline Hanson's One Nation, also known as One Nation or One Nation Party, is an Australian right-wing to far-right political party. It was founded by Pauline Hanson, who has led the party during two periods and was elected as a Federal Senator for Queensland in 2016. One Nation had electoral success in the late 1990s, before suffering an extended decline after 2001. Its leaders have been accused, charged, and later acquitted, of fraud, and the party has suffered from numerous defections, resignations and other internal scandals which culminated in Hanson's resignation from the party. One Nation's policies and platform are much criticized as being racist and xenophobic, although the party denies this. Nevertheless, One Nation has had a profound impact on debates on multiculturalism and immigration in Australia. Following Hanson's return as leader and the 2016 federal election, the party gained 4 seats in the Senate.
