One Nation placed second on Katter how to vote cards
The Katter’s Australian Party and One Nation have announced they will place each other as the number two position on their how to vote cards in an alliance to reflect the major party neglect of Queensland.
KAP leader Robbie Katter said the Liberal and Labor major party dominance had clearly failed regional Queenslanders and that the time was now for much needed change.
“For far two long the major parties have continued to sell off our assets, pushed green ideology and failed to invest in regional job creating mega-infrastructure projects,” Mr Katter said.
“Queensland can’t afford another four years of major party dominance, we know it doesn’t work, enough is enough, times up.”
Mr Katter said the KAP would put the Greens last in all seats.
“The LNP are preferencing the Greens which highlights how out of touch they have become.
“If there is a result of the LNP deal that ends up with a Greens controlled government this looks like no dams, no coal and more crime.
“We can’t risk the Greens grabbing a seat, it’s a major threat to the future of North Queensland.”
Mr Katter said the only way the majors can learn their lesson is that if people don’t give them their vote.
“Both the LNP and Labor are Brisbane based parties and the evidence of this is beyond clear,” he said.
“Up here in the north the LNP they say they are pro coal, yet down in Brisbane they tell everyone they are anti-coal, the truth is they are preferencing the Greens and they can’t have a bet each way.
“Ultimately our preferences are up to the voter, the how to vote card is just a guide.”
Mr Katter said other Westminster democracies who had more than a duopoly party dominance had a better governance of their citizens.
“Stronger minor parties means politicians have to actually fight for your vote in order to make a difference.”
