A renowned Australian politician Anthony Allan Staley AO was born on May 15, 1939, and died in May 2023. He was a Liberal Party politician who held the Victorian seat of Chisholm from 1970 to 1980.
Staley also served in the Fraser administration as Minister for the Capital Territory (1976–1977) and Minister for Posts and Telecommunications from 1977–1980. He received his education at Melbourne’s Scotch College. He graduated from the University of Melbourne with a Bachelor of Laws degree.
Staley was convinced to join the Liberal Party in 1993 when it was at its lowest point and served in that capacity until 1999. During this time, the Liberals enjoyed success: John Howard rose to the position of leader and later served as one of Australia’s longest-serving prime ministers.
Staley was the Australian Liberal Party’s Federal President. When Liberal Leader John Hewson called for a leadership change in May 1994, Staley, then-Liberal President, raised eyebrows by withdrawing his support for Hewson.
