Conservative parties clash in qld.
Labor has threatened to back Labor candidate Peter Whish-Wilson if he wins the seat of Ashfield, despite it not winning a majority in the state Senate.
Ms Whish-Wilson has promised to restore public spending and reduce the amount of government debt.
A spokesman for the party said he wanted to run to build support at the regional level.
It is underst바카라사이트ood Mr Whish-Wilson has been approached by at least two federal candidates.
But he has said “we need the people of Ashfield to decide”, saying that was a priority for the party in 2015.
He has campaigned alongside some of Labor’s most high profile figures, including Dr Phil Walsh, Mr Palmer and former treasurer John Fraser.
Mr Whish-Wilson is scheduled to be sworn in as Ashfield’s MP at 9:30am next morning.
He says he wants to build unity in the party and build a political legacy that will last.
Labor has called on his party to back him at an ALP meeting at the Melbourne town hall on Thursday.
The Federal Opposition has also been urged to back him despite the defeat.
Senator Nick Xenophon says the loss of Ashfield to Labor is an historic defeat and not just po바카라litically as a party.
“I just think that he’s fallen out with the Labor Party and he should be looking to the next parliament as a very viable option at the seat of Ashfield,” he said.
The WA Liberal Party has also backed the party’s candidate at the party’s headquarters in Ashfield.
Mr Anderson said he was proud that Labor voters wanted to retain a Labor Parliament but he wanted to build on that support.
He said the party had given “huge amounts” of resources to the region to rebuild community institutions in the As바카라사이트hfield region, including supporting business from a community level.
“We want to build on the positive successes that we’ve seen and to build on the good work that the regional party has done to rebuild Ashfield,” he said.
