The WA State Election is proving to be an interesting one with the rise of Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party. According to mainstream media PHON has no policies but only incompetent candidates with another Candidate in WA – Ray Gould – resigning from the race over internal bickering. This is not true, PHON have released many policies however mainstream media are not reporting it. Thankfully PHON have embraced social media and can get their policies out that way.
As of 4th March 2017 according to PHON’s website, they have released policies in seven policy areas;
- Crime and Policing
- Clean Government
- Agriculture and Regional Development
- Minerals and Energy
The issue for PHON is that they need to clean up their organisational woes. Develop a sound organisation with a democratic base that allows party members to vote on candidate selection, policies and party executives. PHON also needs to consider re-launching their Young Nation Movement to engage young people. Once they get their organisational woes under control then they will see less negative publicity from the media. Is anyone from PHON listening?
