Annastacia Palaszczuk, buoyed by recent polling, says a Queensland Labor government will reverse a raft of LNP decisions if it wins next year’s election.
Queensland Opposition Leader Annastacia Palaszczuk has pledged to reverse a raft of government policy changes if Labor can achieve an unlikely win at the next state election.
Queensland Labor has just nine MPs in the state’s 89-seat parliament, but has been buoyed by recent polling showing it has a fighting chance at the 2015 poll against an unpopular Liberal National Party (LNP) government.
Ms Palaszczuk told party faithful at the Labor party state conference in Brisbane on Sunday that her government would reverse the LNP’s 24-hour ban on access to work sites for workplace health and safety representatives.
She said a Labor government would also end plans to put school principals on short-term contracts, ensure funding to learn English in schools was fair and reopen the Barrett Adolescent Centre for mental health, which the LNP closed.
“We enter the last seven months of this term in a strong position, having been a strong opposition to an arrogant, incompetent, hopeless government,” Ms Palaszczuk told delegates.
“If our last election result made the history books for all the wrong reasons, let’s make the next election truly historic for all the right ones.”
