Not in this case. You see all Independents CAN candidates subscribe to our core values, and yet are free to conscience vote - or vote to meet their constituents needs in all other areas. Members gain the benefits and support of an alliance without other restrictions. We feel this is a way to return democracy and 'true representation' back to Australian politics.
Members gain the benefits and support of a Party without typical partisan restrictions. Support and numbers when needed...

But the freedom to vote independently to the party, if it better serves their constituents - their local community.

In fact, under our Alliance Independents Can will support candidates that share our common values, yet are not members of the party. Candidates can remain completely independent and still join the Alliance.
