Australia's first party representing Muslims intends to contest senate seats at the next federal election.

Launching the party in Sydney, founder Diaa Mohamed told media that he wanted a louder voice for Muslims.

"There are a lot of parties out there to specifically oppose Islam and Muslims, yet Muslims don't have any official representation," he said.

Australia has a number of anti-Islam parties, including one backed by Dutch MP Geert Wilders.
