The Advance Australia Party (AAP), originally known as the Rex Connor Labor Party, is a minor political party in Australia, was founded in 1988 by the son of former Whitlam Government Minister, Rex Connor after leaving the Australian Labor Party. The party formed in opposition to the embracing of social and economic liberalism by both the Liberal and Labor parties. It was officially registered on 14 July 1989, but deregistered by the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) on 5 December 2005 for failing to endorse a candidate in the previous four years. [1] Connor contested the 1990 federal election in the seat of Cunningham and received 12.8% of the vote, contesting Throsby in 1993 and received 10.48% of the vote. The party last contested a federal election in 2001.

As of 2006, the President of AAP is Rex Connor Jnr.
