  • The Sensible Centre, a self-described "initiative of Civil Society Australia," attempted to run in the 2022 federal election & had at least 1 candidate named - although planned to support independents in the lower & upper houses of parliament. Given their previous involvement as an unregistered party (or group, depending on how you want to label them) candidates with their support at this election will be labelled as "IND-SC" - similar to how Socialist Alliance-endorsed independents are labelled as "IND-SA". Teal independents (or candidates backed by 'Independents' groups, like Kew Independents) will not receive a specific label as a 'teal' candidate is not as easy to define & groups are only backing a single candidate in many cases, but will instead have all those details noted in our 'seat-by-seat' page & also in our other coverage.

  • The Victorians Party announced several candidates but said on August 12 they would no longer be running.
