[APP] Back from the wilderness, ready to serve

Day 1,998, 13:39 Published in Australia Australia by Paul J Keating

I hereby announce my intention to nominate for the position of Party President of the Australian Parliamentary Party.

Some may remember me from my early days in eAustralia as a proud member of the APP leadership team. In those days I was privileged to serve as a member of congress 6 times in my first 6 months, and also held the cabinet positions of Deputy Minister of Finance and Minister of Finance for a number of months consecutively.

Unfortunately during a period on the opposition benches I suddenly discovered I had become what I had never wanted to be - a troll. It prompted me to make a change, I spent time in eSweden working on my rank and gradually losing interest until Draim Alexander (a damn fine person and PM at the time) sent me a shout at an opportune moment and I came home.

It's me, back where it all began

Back where it all began, I of course re-joined my old party the APP. It was great to see venja, who showed me the ropes in my first term as MoF, was party president and doing a fine job of maintaining APP as a leading light of eAus politics.

Now I feel it is time to put myself forward and to give a little back to the party that gave me so much. I have a strong vision for the APP as a party that balances the interests of all citizens, that stands for strong governance, transparency and constructive engagement with the community. We are a party that is internally democratic, but knows how to drive an agenda once the membership has agreed. Strong, unwavering and disciplined, we are a party that can make things happen.

I want to continue building the APP into a powerhouse of eAustralian politics, and to deliver a positive force for the improvement of this nation. On 15th of May, I hope the members will put their faith in me to lead the party for the next term.

Proud APP Member
Prospective APP Party President

Maybe I've misinterpreted this but are you saying a vote for you is a vote for a Venja-style APP?

Not really sure what that means, I believe you're over-thinking it. I'm grateful to venja for the advice and support he's given me, I have my own vision for the party and my own ambitions..

I'd take Venja over you any day TJ. At least he's not bat shit crazy.

Take whoever you like Val, because to me you'll always be an eNew Zealander regardless of the uniform you happen to wear now.
