newsCO.com.au–One Nation rules out KAP seat contest

August 10, 2017

One Nation will not stand candidates against Katter’s Australian Party members Robbie Katter and Shane Knuth in the looming Queensland election.

One Nation’s state leader Steve Dickson on Thursday said the party supported the re-election of Mr Katter, KAP state leader and current member for Mount Isa, and Mr Knuth, member for Dalrymple.

“We believe they are good for Queensland, they are putting people before politics as we are in One Nation, and why would we want to take out good representatives that the state already has?” Mr Dickson told AAP.

Mr Knuth will run in the seat of Hill after his Dalrymple electorate was abolished under changes to the state electoral boundaries.

Mr Katter will contest the seat of Traeger, an expansion and renamed version of his current electorate.

One Nation has previously announced they will not be running against Labor backbencher Jo-Ann Miller.
