The Mutual Party (previously the Bank Reform Party) is a de-registered minor political party in Australia.[1]

The party has been involved in Glenn Druery's Minor Party Alliance.[2][3]

The party's lead candidate for the Senate in Western Australia at the 2014 special election was Anthony Fels, who has been a Liberal (and later independent) member of the Western Australian Legislative Council, and an independent and Katter's Australian Party Senate candidate at the 2010 and 2013 federal elections, respectively.[4][5]

In March 2015, the Australian Progressive Party (not to be confused with the similarly named Australian Progressives) announced that it had absorbed the Mutual Party after they agreed to join forces.[6]

The Mutual Party was deregistered in April 2015, according to the Australian Electoral Commission.[7]
