Queensland voters have the chance to fight for a better future for their families at the October election.

On Friday Family First was notified by the Electoral Commission of Queensland its application for registration was successful.

National Director Lyle Shelton said Family First would be fighting to reduce the cost of living by focussing on energy generation that works and is affordable, for law reform to restore freedom of speech and religion, to end gender ideology in schools and to protect children by banning drag queen story time in public venues.

“In the middle of a cost-of-living crisis, families don’t understand the LNP voting in Parliament for Labor-Green laws for 75pc emissions reduction by 2035.

“This is madness in a state awash with cheap coal and gas,” Mr Shelton said.

“Family-minded voters are also aghast that LNP Leader David Crisafulli has gagged his MPs and candidates ordering them not to ‘freelance’ on values issues.

“Parents are very upset about LGBTIQA+ gender-fluid ideology in their kids’ schools and couldn’t understand shadow Attorney General Tim Nicholls speaking in Parliament in favour of biological men in women’s prisons.

“Mr Crisafulli’s pledge to leave Queensland’s radical abortion-to-birth laws in place if elected, have left pro-life voters gobsmacked.

“Most Queenslanders do not support late-term abortion.”

Mr Shelton said around a dozen party members had stepped forward expressing interest in standing.

“Family First aims to give Queenslanders the chance to fight for their families by running in as many seats as possible,” Mr Shelton said.
