I am writing to thank supporters and volunteers for their momentous support and determination over the past weeks. It has been an amazing effort. The count so far makes it clear that, after only eight months, our message and party recognition was not strong enough to win seats at this election.
Supporters please take heart and feel proud of what has been achieved. We launched on 20th October 2015 from scratch. We built a foundation of members and supporters throughout the country with little to no mainstream advertising and a limited budget.
In less than 9 months we have come from nowhere to beat parties that have sitting Senators and existed much longer than ALA. In the national Senate count as of yesterday morning, there are 11 parties above and 41 below us.
