Palmer United supporters,

You will be pleased to know that Palmer United intends put forward a candidate to contest the upcoming Canning by-election in Western Australia.

Although a date for the by-election is yet to be announced, we are confident of a strong vote for our party. During the Senate re-election, Palmer United took 16.55% of the vote in Canning.

If you have been following the news recently you will be aware that Tony Abbott intends to raise the GST by 5%, meaning yet again Western Australia will be disadvantaged by the GST carve up. You can bet your bottom dollar that the majority of the increased revenue generated from a raise in GST will be heading east to Sydney and Melbourne.

This Government should be held to account and Palmer United are the only party who have continually stood up for Western Australia when it comes to the GST. The Canning by-election will essentially be a referendum on any GST increase and you can send a clear message to the Government that it’s time Western Australia received its fair share.

At the by-election it will be important to have as many volunteers as possible supporting our campaign on polling day.

If you can spare some time to assist with manning polling booths, or would like to help in another way, then please let us know by sending an email to membership@palmerunited.com

In your email please include your name, address and contact phone number.

Once we have endorsed our candidate for the Canning by-election we will provide them with your contact details.

Please accept our thanks in advance and we look forward to another successful campaign in Western Australia.
