Ni­cholls won’t com­mit to One Na­tion help

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

LNP leader Tim Ni­cholls has re­fused to com­mit to ac­cept­ing One Na­tion’s sup­port if the mi­nor party holds the bal­ance of power af­ter the Queens­land elec­tion.

One Na­tion is polling strongly in in­di­vid­ual elec­torates across the state and could find it­self in the po­si­tion of king­maker if it picks up a pre­dicted hand­ful of seats in the Novem­ber 25 poll.

“I’ve been asked that ques­tion plenty of times. My po­si­tion has al­ways been that we are go­ing into this con­test to win,” Mr Ni­cholls said. “We are fo­cused on de­liv­er­ing ma­jor­ity gov­ern­ment.”

He also re­fused to name the six seats he be­lieved the party could pick up to reach the magic num­ber of 47 seats which would grant him a ma­jor­ity in the new 93- seat par­lia­ment.
