LEADER OF THE OPPOSITION THE HON. DR BRENDAN NELSON MP

QUEENSLAND MERGER

I welcome the decision by a clear majority of Queensland Liberal and National Party members to merge the two parties.

I congratulate Mr Bruce McIver on his election to the Presidency and Mr Gary Spence on his election to the Vice Presidency and the other senior office bearers.

This merger will significantly enhance the prospects of the new Liberal National Party of Queensland presenting an effective alternative for Queensland voters and strengthen the prospects of the defeat of the Bligh Government.

We will all now work to see the best interests of the non-Labor side of politics are best served, both in Queensland and nationally.

Whilst the challenges of transition are not to be underestimated, we must now all work to make this happen effectively.
