WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, this Thursday formally introduced via a connection from Skype of London, The WikiLeaks Party, which will compete for a seat in the Senate in the legislative elections in Australia, scheduled for September 14 of 2014.

The new lineup, so far, will represent seven candidates for the upper house in the states of New South Wales, Victoria and Western Australia. They include academics, journalists and human rights defenders.

Despite being a refugee in Ecuador’s embassy in London for over a year, Assange, age 42, candidacy will be presented in Victoria, where he wants to be “an independent ‘scrutinizer’ of government activities”.

“The WikiLeaks Party core values ​​of transparency, accountability and fairness are the standards by which we will examine all relevant issues for Australians: tax reform, asylum applications, the climate change policy and more,” Assange said in an opinion piece published in the Australian newspaper.

WikiLeaks Party spokeswoman, Samantha Cross, said Assange, according to the newspaper “Sydney Morning Herald:

“…wants to return to Australia to take his seat” if elected, adding that political education seeks to fend off the “bastards” and uphold honesty” (ibid).

Under Australian law, if a Senate seat becomes vacant, the seat can be filled by another member of the same party unless the House opposes it. In the event that Assange, an Australian national, could not fulfill his candidacy due to political maneuverings, the writer Leslie Cannold will assume Assange’s legislative functions, if elected.

Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd Labor will no doubt play games and reschedule the elections but they are now scheduled for September 14, 2013,
