Pauline Hansons One Nation Australian political party

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 and is currently led by Senator Pauline Hanson. While One Nation has achieved only modest electoral success to date, it is the most successful populist party in Australia. The party had a brief but notable period of success in the late 1990s. 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 prompted its initial decline and culminated in Hanson's resignation from the party. One Nation's policies and platform are widely criticized as being racist and xenophobic, although the party has denied 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 has seen a revival in support.

The Australia First Party (NSW) Incorporated is an Australian far-right political party founded in 1996 by Graeme Campbell.
