Federal MP Clive Palmer says his party will stand in the Queensland election and repeal all legislation passed by the Campbell Newman government if elected.

The Palmer United Party (PUP) achieved 11 per cent of the primary vote in Queensland, despite establishing itself just two months before the September federal poll.

“A bill will be presented to the Queensland parliament, which will be a simple bill, which in effect will have a provision that all legislation passed by the Newman government shall be repealed forthwith,” he told reporters on the Sunshine Coast.

“So the message is, help is on the way, that we will get there, that we will obliterate from the record books the history of the Newman government.”

PUP is represented in the Queensland parliament through state leader Alex Douglas and deputy Carl Judge.

The party is expected next week to announce a high-profile candidate for the Queensland seat of Kawana, held by Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie.
