The Voluntary Euthanasia Party (VEP) ran a strong Federal Election campaign in 2016 to continue pushing the national debate towards the legalisation of voluntary assisted dying. We nominated 7 candidates across the 3 states that were identified as most strategically important.
An impressive range of VEP candidates contested the Senate races in New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia, as well as the lower house seat of Menzies. You can see the full biographies of each candidate and other campaign information at the following links:
We have seen real momentum on our issue since the VEP's inception back in 2013, and we will continue to work as one part of the movement committed to achieving law reform.
