Consumer Rights & No-Tolls is an Australian political party which was registered with the Australian Electoral Commission on 7 March 2016[2] and deregistered on 9 May 2018.[3] It has been registered in Queensland since 2015.

The Consumer Rights & No-Tolls Party has been registered with the Electoral Commission Queensland for state and local government elections since 23 October 2015,[4] and Jeffrey Hodges stood for Mayor of Brisbane in the 2016 Brisbane City Council Mayoral election on 19 March 2016,[5] receiving 12,600 first preference votes (2.11%).[6]

Hodges was the only candidate endorsed by the party for the 2016 federal election, for the House of Representatives seat of Rankin.[7]

On 20 June 2017, the party changed its name on the Queensland party register to Civil Liberties, Consumer Rights, No-Tolls and ran eight candidates at the 2017 Queensland state election.[8]

On 7 February 2018, the Australian Electoral Commission issued a notice that it was considering deregistering the party on the grounds that it had ceased to have at least 500 members.[9] While the notice about deregistration was still on the Electoral Commission website, a new notice was posted on 7 May 2018 reflecting an application to enter a logo,[10] however, the next day the AEC confirmed the party had been deregistered.[3] The secretary of the party appealed the deregistration decision however the three person Electoral Commission affirmed the decision to deregister on 21 August 2018.[11]

The party remained registered in Queensland.[12]
