  • Nick Xenophon Team (NXT) is a centrist Australian political party founded by Senator Nick Xenophon on 1 July 2013 and which made its national debut at the 2016 federal election. Upon launching NXT, Xenophon said his motivation was "the electorate's lack of trust in politics and voter disillusionment".As the 2016 election was a double dissolution, Senate quotas were reduced to 7.7% from 14.3% for a normal half-Senate election. The Xenophon Group Senate ticket in South Australia won a record 24.9 percent of the statewide primary vote at the 2013 election with a further primary vote increase in polls since. Multiple seat-level opinion polls in the rural South Australian Liberal seats of Mayo, Grey and Barker during the 2016 campaign found NXT leading the Liberals on the two-candidate vote in all three seats and on the cusp in Sturt. ABC psephologist Antony Green indicated NXT has a "strong chance of winning lower house seats and three or four Senate seats". (en)
  • The Nick Xenophon Team (NXT) is a centrist Australian political party founded by former Senator Nick Xenophon on 1 July 2013 which made its national debut at the 2016 federal election. The party was previously known as Nick Xenophon Group (2014).Upon launching NXT, Xenophon said his motivation was "the electorate's lack of trust in politics and voter disillusionment". After launching a South Australian state-based party named Nick Xenophon's SA-BEST, it was reported that NXT would be renamed as SA-BEST (Federal). However, after the departure of Xenophon from Australian politics, the party has announced its new name will be Centre Alliance.The party contested the 2016 federal election, winning three Senate seats from a 21.7% state-wide vote in South Australia, as well as the House of Representatives seat of Mayo in South Australia from a 34.9% primary and 55.0% two-candidate vote. However, it failed to poll well or gain seats in any state outside South Australia.Since the 2016 election, the party's representation has changed with the resignations of Xenophon (to contest the 2018 South Australian state election, where he failed to be elected) and Kakoschke-Moore (for holding dual citizenship). Xenophon appointed Rex Patrick as his replacement, while the Court of Disputed Returns installed former NXT candidate Tim Storer as Kakoschke-Moore's successor, although he will sit as an independent.In 2018, deputy leader Stirling Griff made it clear that SA-Best is "a separate entity, a separate association, a separate party" from NXT. However, it was reported that other parties have been registered, including NSW-BEST, VIC-BEST, WA-BEST, QLD-BEST and NT-BEST. On 10 April 2018, it was announced the federal NXT party will be renamed Centre Alliance. (en)
