The Australian Independents (2009-2013) was the largest political party in Australia. It prided itself on being free from ideological conflict and hierarchical domination. It emphasised a membership first approach. The Australian Independents has always been a key part of the Australian Government. It has shaped the country right from the very start and helped it prosper throughout the nations history, producing a significant amount of Presidents, Ministers and Congress Members.

History

The Australian Independents Party (AIP) was a Centerist party founded by Xavier Griffith. Beginning as a minor political party after Xavier Griffith became disillusioned with the apparent far-left swing by the Australian Democratic Socialist Party.

The AIP was formed with the idea of allowing those that could be seen as Minority Political Beliefs an opportunity to join a Political Party that can work towards their ideas. The main motto of the AIP is: Keep the bastards honest. Which means that the AIP will work to ensure that the PM and his Cabinet of the day are kept honest and that their policies do not sway too far from the centre line either left or right which could be seen as not being of benefit to the Nation as a whole.

Xavier Griffith was involved in the reconstruction of eAustralia, owns a number of businesses of his own and has been elected to the Senate for 18 terms and has held the position of Speaker of the Senate for 3 Terms. He is also served as the first Minister of Information. He was also eAustralian Prime Minister for 2 terms.

This party was originally called the Australian Independents Party, however, during the Party Presidency of H.Nelson (September 2009), it was officially renamed to its last name, Australian Independents (AI).

The Australian Independents ceased to be an Australian party on June 16, 2010, following the PTO by Indonesian-backed threesecond. The party was restarted in December 2010 by its original founder - Xavier Griffith. The party survived next two years and died out sometime at the end of 2012 / beginning of 2013.
