THE Australia First Party (AFP) yesterday announced their candidate for the upcoming federal election.
Wagga resident and mother of five Lorraine Sharp has been selected by the minority party to lead its Riverina campaign.
AFP members have been vocal and highly critical of the proposed Wuai Group trade centre and have labelled the centre a "migrant compound" and "a pivotal Chinese immigration beachhead".
"We did have a couple of people express interest and had to go through the details before settling on Lorraine," AFP state president Doctor Jim Saleam said.
Dr Saleam said Mrs Sharp had a combination of university education and life experience, which would make her a good candidate.
Mrs Sharp has been a member of AFP for five years and volunteered her time in drug and alcohol rehabilitation as well as areas of mental health and homelessness, according to the AFP website.
"Through this journey I have learned much about the greatness of the Australian spirit and true mateship," Mrs Sharp said.
"I see the Chinese trade centre in Wagga Wagga as the spider in the middle of the web of overseas takeover of our land and an agency of a pure and simple imperialism."
