The Party for Freedom acknowledges and respects people who hold these values, who identify with the Australian way of life, who identify as Australian; whose primary allegiance is to Australia, regardless of any dual citizenship they hold; who acknowledge their debt to the British settlers who founded modern Australia, and to the British institutions, culture, customs and traditions that have sustained it; and who value the English language as its primary tool of communication.

2.3 The Party for Freedom rejects multiculturalism, and advocates an immigration policy based on cultural compatibility; where new migrants should not be sourced from countries or ethnicities in greater proportion than their current share of the population; rejects Islam as fundamentally incompatible with these values, and is committed to regaining control of Australia’s borders.
