Wikileaks announced on Saturday that founder Julian Assange will run for a seat in the Australian Senate, although the details of which state that will be in have yet to be revealed. Wikileaks also announced that it is looking for a candidate to take on Prime Minister Julia Gillard in her Victorian seat.

Assange currently remains in the UK on bail awaiting news of the British Supreme Court decision on his appeal against possible extradition to Sweden. Incarceration and legal issues aside, Wikileaks claim that he can still run for the Australian senate while detained and says despite his legal predicament, Assange is eligible to run for the Upper House.
