Australissian Government endorses WARepublic Party
However, over the last few years, the idea of secession has seen a resurgence in popularity. In 2017, the Western Australian Liberal Party formed a committee with the task of investigating the viability of Western Australian secession, however not much is publicly known about the results of said committee. However, according to a poll taken by Utting Research, with a sample size of 3500 Western Australians, 28% stated that they would support Western Australia becoming its own country.
Following this survey becoming public, ex-members of the controversial Australian Palmer United Party, joined together to form the WARepublic Party, with the express goal of winning seats in the upcoming March 2021 State elections.
Why should WA become its own country though? Should the movement succeed, Western Australia would likely have an economy comparable to New Zealand, Qatar and South Africa, at $202 billion USD, according to the current Gross State Product (GSP) of Western Australia. This would mean that as opposed to the majority of the money made by Western Australian industry going to the Eastern States, it would stay in WA, helping to grow and develop the state.
One of the goals that the Unified Royal States of Australis has always stood for is Western Australian secession. It makes sense that with the formation of this newfound political party, that our nation would support it in it's push to achieve secession from the Federation of Australia.
