The LNP has opened nominations for candidates for the next Federal Election in the three seats that cross the South Burnett.
Nominations are being sought for Wide Bay (currently held by Deputy PM Warren Truss), Flynn (Ken O’Dowd) and Maranoa (Deputy Speaker Bruce Scott).
It is LNP policy to open every seat to nominations ahead of every election, regardless of the intentions of the sitting member.
Nominations will close on August 14.
UPDATE August 3: The LNP has extended the period for nominations by prospective candidates in Maranoa to Friday, August 28, following the announcement by Bruce Scott that he will retire at the next Federal Election.
