Federal VEP

The Voluntary Euthanasia Party (VEP) is a minor political party, founded in early 2013 to advocate legislative change to allow voluntary euthanasia in Australia.

The party applied to the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) to be registered as a federal political party on 10 May 2013. The application was assessed on 20 May and the party was registered on 1 June 2013.

One of the key ideas behind the formation of the VEP was to bring together the various voluntary euthanasia groups under a single political platform. When forming the VEP, the executives of pro-voluntary euthanasia organisations were consulted, including Philip Nitschke, the founder of Exit International and Richard Mills, the President of Dying With Dignity (NSW) in 2013.

Professor Ranjan Ray, former President of the Western Australia Voluntary Euthanasia Society, was the first Convenor of the VEP and he was succeeded by Kerry Bromson in 2014.

The VEP held its inaugural AGM on 7 December 2015.
