Wyatt’s stay­ing put

Kalamunda Reporter - - News -

HASLUCK MHR Ken Wyatt has dis­missed ru­mours he is con­sid­er­ing not stand­ing at the next Fed­eral elec­tion – and he blames the Op­po­si­tion for spread­ing mis­in­for­ma­tion. “The short an­swer is bol­locks,” he said. “I’m dis­ap­pointed that La­bor is play­ing the strat­egy of false news in or­der to cre­ate un­cer­tainty among the vot­ers of Hasluck.”

The Min­is­ter for Aged Care and Indigenous Health said that af­ter nu­mer­ous in­quiries from jour­nal­ists, he was aware the claims had come from a La­bor Party source.

“I want to as­sure ev­ery­one, in­clud­ing the peo­ple I rep­re­sent, that I will be stand­ing at the next elec­tion,” he said.

“I am in­tent on help­ing to de­liver in Hasluck the re­cent Turn­bull gov­ern­ment Bud­get com­mit­ments of tax relief for work­ers and lo­cal busi­nesses and more sup­port for fam­i­lies and older Aus­tralians.”
