The ACT Greens have announced Tim Hollo and Tjanara Goreng Goreng as their candidates in the next federal election.
Mr Hollo will once again run for the seat of Canberra, while academic and Wakka Wakka woman Dr Goreng Goreng, will seek to secure the ACT's second Senate seat.
"As a senior First Nations woman, I have a responsibility to challenge the system which continues to deny First Nations people sovereignty, justice and the ability to implement our law - the oldest in existence," Dr Goreng Goreng said.
"I'm running for the Senate because I've seen up close the power that government has to transform the lives of people and communities, and the devastation and pain that can be caused when government fails to listen, to empathise, and to do the right thing."
Mr Hollo also ran for seat in the House of Representatives in the 2019 federal election. He received a four per cent swing in his favour for a total of 24.5 per cent but was unable to shift the seat from Labor.
"I've spent years working in and with the community, and that gives me great faith in democracy - if we make it work. I know from personal experience that people not only can work together, but that our communities and democracy work best when we all take part, when every voice is heard. That's what I want to bring to the House of Representatives," he said.
The party is hopeful it can build on the momentum of the ACT Election, after six Greens were elected into Parliament, where three now hold Cabinet positions.
"The ACT is the Greenest jurisdiction in the country, and our community cares deeply about vital issues like climate action, housing affordability, donation reform and government accountability," Mr Hollo said.
Mr Hollo is the executive director of the Green Institute, and a visiting fellow at the ANU's RegNet, as well as a writer and musician.
Dr Goreng Goreng has worked as a senior public servant in the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, as well as roles in homelessness support, women's refuges and remote Indigenous communities.
She is currently an academic at ACU and secretary of the Australian Greens First Nations Network.
