Senator Grant Tambling Shadow Minister for Regional Development, External Territories and Northern Australia

Media Release

FIRST STEP IN FEDERAL ELECTION CAMPAIGN

The pre-selection of Arthur Palmer as Country Liberal candidate for the House of Representatives has been welcomed by Senator Grant Tambling.

Senator Tambling said today he had informed his Liberal-National colleagues of the pre-selection and looked forward to winning the next federal election with Mr Palmer.

"His background as a specialist consultant in Aboriginal health and land matters is complemented by his keen interest in Northern Territory development, particularly Darwin's northern suburbs and Alice Springs.

"The sitting Labor member, Warren Snowdon, has good cause to be concerned; since 1987, he has only pandered to sectional

interests in the NT and factional interests in Canberra."
