The One Nation national executive has thrown open nominations for candidacy in the Federal seat of Hunter.
The move follows an inability by former candidate Stuart Bonds to commit his support to the party (in the Newcastle Herald and Sydney Morning Herald).
National Executive Treasurer, Alex Jones said, “One Nation remains the country’s last fully committed party to the coal mining industry in the Hunter region and greater New South Wales.”
“Hunter residents live in fear of the knowledge that both major parties have an ultimate goal to put a stop to coal mining in NSW. This will mean the death of up to 110,000 coal mining jobs and destroy the livelihoods and viability of the region.”
“We have a year to prepare for the next federal election, and want someone as equally passionate about preserving the Hunter mining industry as Mark Latham and Rod Roberts.”
