Protestant People's Party
The party contested the 1946 Australian federal election for election to the Senate, in which it gained 7.7% of the vote in NSW (which translated to 3% nationally). This was a particularly impressive result for a minor party at the time, given the strength of the two-party system in Australia during the 1940s. Nevertheless, the result was insufficient to gain the PPP a parliamentary seat. Three years later, the PPP contested the 1949 Australian federal election, but saw its vote collapse to just 1% of the total NSW Senate vote. The PPP was never successful in winning representation to either the NSW or Australian parliaments.
