In this Victorian State Election Scorecard, ANTAR has provided a guide to the policies of the Victorian Labor Party, the Liberal-National Coalition, and the Victorian Greens, in relation to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander affairs.

In October 2022, ANTAR wrote to the three major Victorian political parties, seeking their policies and election commitments relating to:

  1. Treaty: The advancement of Treaty in Victoria.
  2. Closing the Gap: State obligations under the Victorian Closing the Gap Implementation Plan 2021-2023.
  3. Injustice and Incarceration: Addressing the injustice of disproportionately high incarceration rates.
  4. Cultural Heritage Protection: Ensuring the adequate protection of First Nations cultural heritage.

At the time this Election Scorecard was published, the Victorian Labor Government and the Victorian Greens had provided a response, however the Victorian Liberal-National Coalition had not responded, so we have drawn upon their publicly available policy positions and announcements to inform our analysis.
