Greens will back Labor if it kills off Adani’s mine
GREENS candidate Amy MacMahon will back a Labor government in exchange for the death of the Adani mine if she is able to boot the Deputy Premier from her South Brisbane seat.
The promise to provide supply to a potential Labor minority government came as Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk continued to deny she would accept it.
“I said that there would be no deals,” Ms Palaszczuk said, echoing a commitment she made at the 2015 election not to form a minority government but then broke.
But Ms MacMahon said there was no way she would back a Nicholls LNP government.
“We’ve said that we won’t enter into negotiations with the LNP or One Nation,” she said.

The Courier-Mail showed Ms MacMahon had edged ahead of Deputy Premier Jackie Trad in South Brisbane because of shrinking support for both major parties and expected preference flows from LNP voters to the Greens.
She said the Greens would enter negotiations with Labor in the event neither major party achieved a majority government on November 25.
The party would demand a royalties deal for the Adani’s Carmichael coal mine be killed off and its mining lease and environmental approvals revoked.
She said South Brisbane voters did not want the mine.
