The Nationals WA



The National Party of Western Australia is a political party in Western Australia. It is affiliated with the National Party of Australia but maintains a separate structure and identity.


Nationals WA candidate Tony Crook defeated Liberal Party incumbent Wilson Tuckey in the lower house seat of O'Connor at the 2010 federal election, where a four-seat deficit for both sides saw the first hung parliament since the 1940 federal election. Crook previously sat on the crossbench after the election; he and his party remained open to negotiations by both sides on the formation of the 2010 federal government. In April 2012, however, he moved from the crossbench to sit with the Nationals. His main platform is pro-Royalties for Regions policy and anti-Mineral Resource Rent Tax. Since his election, Crook at times has voted for federal Labor government policies in parliament contrary to the official position of the National Party of Australia.
