LNP Leader Tim Nicholls and LNP President Gary Spence today announced that the LNP has finalised its How-to-Vote cards for the state election.

The Greens have been put last on every LNP How-to-Vote card.

“The defining issue of this campaign is job creation and who can deal with record high power prices,” Mr Nicholls said.

“The Greens’ policies destroy jobs and push up power prices and these positions hurt Queensland families and small businesses and regrettably the Greens are joined at the hip with Labor.

“The only way for Queenslanders to get the positive change they want is to vote for their local Liberal National Party candidate. And the only way for you and your family to get ahead is to vote for your local Liberal National Party candidate.

“A vote for anyone else will mean the return of a do-nothing Labor Government and the price that Queenslanders will pay is higher power prices, less job security and more political correctness.”

Mr Spence said: “The leadership of the LNP made a commitment to members of the Party to seek their input on the ordering of local How-to-Vote cards.

“This was done after Labor changed our voting system in 18 minutes for rank political opportunism from optional preferential to compulsory preferential voting.

“With 93 seats, the process took time to complete, and was done on a seat by seat basis.

“The decision was ratified by the State Executive of the LNP, taking into consideration the local consultation.”

Mr Spence said historically the LNP's preferences were rarely distributed as LNP candidates traditionally finished first or second in the primary vote for each seat.

“The LNP has not entered into a preference arrangement with One Nation, the Labor Party, Katter Australia Party or the Greens,” Mr Spence said.

“Labor, the Greens, One Nation and Katter have all entered into preference deals.

“We make recommendations, through our How-To-Vote cards, but they are recommendations and we trust Queenslanders to vote for change and to vote against this do-nothing Labor Government.”

Mr Nicholls said: “Annastacia Palaszczuk has presided over record high electricity prices, overseen the loss of 30,000 jobs last year and seen crime spiral out of control in Townsville and Cairns.

“Similarly, One Nation are full of empty promises and have no record of delivering for the people of Queensland.

“Pauline Hanson is not running in this election. Steve Dickson won’t win his seat and One Nation will be leaderless meaning they can’t and won’t be able to deliver what they promise.

“One Nation have put hard-working local Members like Andrew Cripps, Dale Last, Ian Walker, Tarnya Smith and others behind Labor – meaning a vote for One Nation in Hinchinbrook, Burdekin, Mansfield and Mt Ommaney is a vote for Labor.

“Queenslanders remember, that in 1998 and 2001, when One Nation gained seats in the Queensland parliament and then collapsed, it confined Queensland to 12 years of Labor rule.

“Queenslanders can’t risk not getting the change they want.

“At the coming election we will be asking Queenslanders to give the LNP their first preference to achieve the change we need to Build a Better Queensland.”
