KAP are set to make history in Queensland parliament this week with the possibility of passing of two private members bills and taking significant steps forward with the biofuel industry.
With only seven private members bills passing since the formation of Queensland Parliament the Sugar Industry (Real Choice in Marketing) Amendment Bill and the Electoral (Improving Representation) and Another Act Amendment Bill 2015 could change the face of state politics.
KAP State leader and member for Mt Isa Rob Katter said KAP has the potential to make up for ground lost by rural and regional Queensland in the coming days.
“I hope its clear KAP will always fight for the very people we promised to fight for,” Mr Katter said.
“We are persevering to address the imbalance in the markets and in representation – we are here to stay.”
Mr Katter said the significance of minor parties serving as a middle ground cannot be overstated.
“This week strikes at the heart of how a good political system can work when a minor party can contribute to the ideas that come into the House,” Mr Katter said.
“I think all walks of life must continue to be represented, and I think it is arrogant to suggest only major parties have the solution.”
