Australia's first party representing Muslims intends to contest senate seats at the next federal election.
Launching the party in Sydney, founder Diaa Mohamed told Fairfax he wanted a louder voice for Muslims.
"There are a lot of parties out there to specifically oppose Islam and Muslims, yet Muslims don't have any official representation," he said. Australia has a number of anti-Islam parties, including one backed by Dutch MP Geert Wilders.
