Pre­mier out to re­cover lost ground

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

AN­NASTA­CIA Palaszczuk is set to be­come the high- vis pre­mier in the lead up to the next state elec­tion in a move to try to recharge her pop­u­lar­ity.

Ms Palaszczuk, who toured a bat­tery fac­tory in Ip­swich yes­ter­day, said she was un­con­cerned about her de­clin­ing ap­proval rat­ing in a re­cent poll and was more wor­ried about help­ing Queens­land bat­tlers.

“I have been out here meet­ing with the work­ers – they’re say­ing to me ‘ keep go­ing and keep work­ing hard’,” she said.

A Galaxy poll pub­lished in The Sun­day Mail found Ms Palaszczuk’s sup­port had slumped from 47 per cent, af­ter Cy­clone Deb­bie, to just 39 per cent. The Pre­mier will visit the Ekka this Fri­day and Cabi­net will meet there the fol­low­ing Monday. She is also ex­pected at the fa­mous Mount Isa Rodeo this week­end.

Ms Palaszczuk said she would keep trav­el­ling across the state.
