Pauline's United Australia Party
|Founded||24 May 2007|
|Preceded by||One Nation|
|Headquarters||PO Box 428
Pauline's United Australia Party was an Australian political party launched by One Nation founder Pauline Hanson on 24 May 2007 and registered by the Australian Electoral Commission on 20 September 2007.
The party draws on the name but is unrelated to the historic United Australia Party which existed from 1931 to 1945. Hanson formed the party in order to ensure that her name appeared above the line (as per the voting method in Australian federal elections) rather than simply below the line amongst a list of independent candidates.
Brian Burston, Hanson's former One Nation adviser and future Senator, also contested the Senate in the state of New South Wales and received 39,807 votes, which translated into nearly 1% of the total votes.
Hanson was later invited to rejoin One Nation in an effort to reinvigorate the party and has since been elected to the senate.
