“Australian Conservatives was created to unite conservatives and give them a stronger voice in parliament.  Family First have now added their firepower to Australia’s fastest growing political movement.”

“Australian Conservatives have already made an impact in federal politics, and we have previously telegraphed the intention to contest state elections.  I am thrilled to join forces with Dennis Hood and Rob Brokenshire to strengthen the conservative voice at the state level.”

“Family First has played an important role over 15 years in the SA Parliament,” said the Hon. Dennis Hood MLC, Parliamentary Leader for Family First in South Australia, “This amalgamation with Australian Conservatives provides the perfect opportunity to strengthen our voice in South Australia and nationally.”

The Hon. Robert Brokenshire MLC, Family First member of the South Australian Legislative Council, also welcomed the move.  “I’ve had a long association with conservative politics in SA.  Australian Conservatives provides a better way for South Australia,” he said.
