Federal Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter, and Queensland State Member for Beaudesert, Aidan McLindon, have today announced that the merger of the Katter’s Australian Party and The Queensland Party will create a strong political force for the next Queensland state election, due in March next year.

“The merger of these two parties will provide an obvious choice for Queenslanders who want to see good government and seats will be won in Brisbane at the next Queensland state election,” said Mr Katter.

“Today is the end of economic rationalism in this country and the start of economic nationalism because this party will stand up for Australian businesses. It is only last week that the final manufacturer of electric motors in Australia shut its doors and we are going to put policies in place to bring these industries back and provide jobs for the future.”

Mr McLindon, who becomes the Queensland Parliamentary Leader of The Australian Party, stated that he was proud to work alongside Mr Katter and that the overwhelming majority of members, candidates and the State Executive of The Queensland Party supported the merger because both parties held identical values.

“This is an historic day and this party has been formed to put the interests of Queenslanders first,” said Mr McLindon.

“In the lead up to the next state election this party will offer a simple choice for Queenslanders. A vote for Katter’s Australian Party is a vote to prevent the privatisation of the power industry and further increases in the family electricity bill. No other party can promise this because they are pro-privatisation.”
