A new anti-vaccination party has been registered by the Australian Electoral Commission, with the Involuntary Medication Objectors Party joining the Health Australia Party with policies against vaccination programs and water fluoridation. The IMOP has been started by Michael O’Neill, and its constitution states that it is against compulsory vaccination. Details about the party’s membership are scant, but it seems as if it was founded over a year ago, with formal registration with the AEC just coming through. According to the party’s website, it plans to run in the Senate. The party’s registered address is West Kempsey, which is north-west of Port Macquarie.

“The Involuntary Medication Objectors Party will be standing at least one candidate in the next Federal Senate election. The party needs your support to turn back this great tide of evil that strikes right at the heart of our hard won freedoms that make us uniquely Australian.”
