One Na­tion re­vealed

Pilbara News - - State Election 2017 - Tom Zaun­mayr

One Na­tion ap­pears to have se­lected a Perth res­i­dent to take on WA Na­tion­als Leader Brendon Grylls in the Pil­bara seat.

Clare­mont res­i­dent An­drea Ran­dle is un­der­stood to be One Na­tion’s pick for the Pil­bara seat, while Dane Sorensen will con­test North West Cen­tral.

Ms Ran­dle is reg­is­tered in Perth on the elec­toral role. The White Pages also has A. Ran­dle listed in Clare­mont. She failed to re­spond to re­quests for com­ment. The party’s head of­fice failed to re­spond with de­tails of the two can­di­dates by time of print.

One Na­tion will field three Min­ing and Pas­toral Re­gion can­di­dates — Robin Scott, Justin Keat­ing and Maz Fian­naca.

Mr Grylls said One Na­tion was yet to earn the re­spect of vot­ers in WA.

“I think his­tory will re­call in 2001 One Na­tion elected some MPs into the Par­lia­ment,” he said.

“Within a year it went pear-shaped and be­came dys­func­tional, there was in­fight­ing, they quit the party and were gone at the next elec­tion.

“I am very con­fi­dent the vot­ers not just in the Pil­bara, but in all of West­ern Aus­tralia will com­pare what has hap­pened when One Na­tion gets elected and what hap­pens when the Na­tion­als get elected and have a very clear and stark choice when it comes to the elec­tion in March.”
