CANBERRA, Australia, July 2 (UPI) -- WikiLeaks said its founder Julian Assange may be on the election ballot for the Australian Senate.
Australia's Electoral Commission approved the registration application for the WikiLeaks Party Tuesday, the Australian Broadcasting Corp. reported.
Party founder Julian Assange previously indicated he will run for the Senate.
He is currently holed up in the Ecuadoran embassy in London to avoid extradition to Sweden for questioning in a sexual assault case.
WikiLeaks said if Assange is elected to the Senate but unable to return to Australia another candidate could fill his spot.
