Nominations closed on Tuesday for the Queensland state election, so I’ve done one last update for my candidate list.
There are 453 candidates running: an average of 4.87 per seat.
Labor, the Liberal National Party and the Greens are all running a full ticket. There are nine seats where they are the only parties running.
One Nation is running in 61 seats. Katter’s Australian Party is running ten candidates, while the Civil Liberties, Consumer Rights, No-Tolls party is running eight candidates. There are also 95 independents running.
The gender balance for the bigger parties are:
- 18% – One Nation
- 28% – LNP
- 37.6% – Labor
- 44.1% – Greens
