Electoral Commission to De-Register The Queensland Party

The Electoral Commission of Queensland will formally begin the process to de-register The Queensland Party when it advertises in The Courier Mail tomorrow.

The Queensland Party no longer meets the requirements of a registered political party, following the decision by Aidan McLindon to join the Australian Party, supported by the majority of the party’s Executive, candidates and members.

The Queensland Party’s Constitution also states that is shall be dissolved if it no longer meets these requirements.

State Secretary, Bernard Gaynor, said that the process of dissolving the party was underway, acknowledging that a small number of people were unhappy with the process.

“Some members have chosen not to join the Australian Party, led by Jim Nicholls who was not prepared to face a joint-review of his candidacy in Mount Isa,” said Mr Gaynor.

“This has led to statements from Mr Nicholls in the media that he has lodged a complaint with the police about the financial management of the party. I have spoken with the police and they have confirmed that no complaints have been lodged.”

“More importantly, there has been no wrong-doing and any suggestions that funds have been transferred to the Australian Party are not true. The allegations are vexatious and in any case I am more than happy assist police in the event Mr Nicholls does decide to make a complaint to the police rather than the media.”

“The real news is that the decision by the majority of The Queensland Party to join the Australian Party has built a stronger team and there will be formidable new major party at the next state election ready to stand up for Queenslanders.”
