You could be the next local member and make a difference for your community and WA.

Applications for Endorsement as a 2025 State Election Candidate for The Nationals WA are NOW OPEN!

The Nationals WA are proud to fight for West Australians who want to have a better life with access to the jobs, services, and infrastructure their community needs; regardless of where they live.

The cost of living, access to basic services and housing, are out of control and out of reach for many West Australians who are sick of excuses from a Labor State Government that has tried nothing and is fresh out of ideas.

We are looking for genuine local advocates who are ready to roll their sleeves up and do the hard work to ensure a better future for their community and the whole of Western Australia.

The future of WA depends on returning our brand of common sense leadership to government and that relies on effective local champions, like you, stepping up to represent your community.
