(Excerpt from  - CEC Media Release - CEC’s election candidates fight to Stop bail-in — Break up the banks — Rebuild the country)

The CEC is not able to run candidates in every seat, partly because the major parties have conspired to price out independently funded parties and candidates by doubling the nomination fee again. This is how the major parties collude—faced with losing increasing votes to minor parties and independents, instead of changing their policies they work out how to block competition.

Where the CEC doesn’t have candidates, vote and preference those candidates and parties that support taking on the banks. The parties that are genuine include:

  • Katter’s Australian Party—Bob Katter was the first to introduce the Separation of banks bill into Parliament, in June 2018;

  • The Greens—have become serious champions of bank separation and a people’s bank;

  • Pauline Hanson’s One Nation—Pauline Hanson introduced the Separation of Banks bill into the Senate in February, and her fellow Senator Peter Georgiou referred it to the Senate Economics Legislation Committee for an inquiry, the outcome of which the panicked Liberals have rigged on behalf of the banks;

  • Centre Alliance—Rebekha Sharkie supported Bob Katter’s introduction of the Separation of Banks bill, and the Centre Alliance senators voted for a motion to break up the banks in September 2018.

Contact all other individual candidates and parties to find out where they stand. Let’s ensure that whoever wins this election, when they take their seats in the House and Senate they have banking separation ringing in their ears!

Why should I vote for the Citizens Electoral Council?

In this election, the CEC is focused on our Five-point program for Australia to survive the new global crash represented by the links above.

  1. Stop ‘bail-in’ and Break up the banks

  2. A national bank

  3. A moratorium on home and farm foreclosures

  4. Infrastructure jobs and development

  5. International cooperation on financial architecture and trade

The CEC’s policy program addresses the reality that a new financial crisis is inevitable. By any measure, the Australian and global financial systems are in worse condition today than at the time of the 2008 global financial crisis, especially in terms of what caused the last crisis—unpayable debt.

Australia has record foreign and household debt; we are losing our productive industries, such as car and steel manufacturing; real unemployment is at least nearly 10 per cent; and our banking system faces wipe out when the property bubble inevitably crashes.

For 31 years the CEC has fought as an independent political party for the principles of the common good and national sovereignty, in economic and foreign policy, which are needed today.

We have fought to free Australia from the Crown-City of London-Wall Street apparatus of banks and multinational corporations, which seized control of our economy under the policies of deregulation and privatisation that the Hawke- Keating ALP started, and the Liberals continued.

We have fought for economic development using a national bank to invest in large-scale water, power and transport infrastructure projects, in order to expand our agriculture and manufacturing industries and create hundreds of thousands of productive jobs.

We have fought for a just world economic order based on respect for national sovereignty, and the principle of peace through economic development—that nations collaborating on mutually beneficial economic development projects provides the basis for lasting peace.

Read through the CEC’s policies that are based on these principles.

If you support these ideas—if you want Australia to be a productive agro-industrial economy with affordable housing and full time jobs for all, if you agree that war with China and Russia is insane—vote for the CEC.
