Veteran Australian broadcaster Derryn Hinch has announced he will run for the Senate in Victoria after forming his own political party-Justice Party.

Hinch’s Justice Party will stand candidates in all states and territories in the federal election in 2016.

“The timing is right. Australians are fed up with the quality, or lack of quality, in our judicial system,” Mr Hinch said in a press release.

“My decision to go into politics is a result of all the support we received for last year’s Jail 2 Justice walk and the 160,000 people who signed the petition for a national public register of convicted sex offenders.

“The Justice Party stands for justice and equality in so many areas of our lives. There’s our petition, bail reform and justice in sentencing, but also the courts have to start taking the epidemic of domestic violence more seriously. Also when you talk about equal rights it must mean equal rights for all Australians. So that all people can live and marry and work like everybody else — plus equal pay and equal reward — whatever their colour, creed or sexuality’.
