North Queensland Labor Party

The North Queensland Labor Party was a minor political party in Australia from 1949 to 1974. [1]

The Party succeeded the Hermit Park Labor Party (HERM) in 1949 and was succeeded by the North Queensland Party in 1974.[1]

It has been classified as a 'aggrieved minority' party, meaning that its primary purpose (similar to the National Party of Australia) is representation of a particular geographical grouping of people within Australia, in this case North Queensland.[1] The Party peaked in the 1950 Queensland election attracting 7 689 votes for 8 candidates and also winning the seat of Mundingburra.[1] The Party lost the seat at the 1956 election and only stood one candidate at each following election up to 1969.[1]
