Conservatives' NSW push

January 24, 2019

The Conservative Party will make a push for representation in the NSW State Election.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports, Conservatives have already preselected two candidates for lower house seats.

Retired Qantas pilot Steve Busch will to run in Ryde on the back of what the party viewed as a good showing in the 2017 federal Bennelong by-election. 

The Conservatives secured a primary vote in Bennelong of about 5 per cent, largely at the expense of Fred Nile's Christian Democratic Party. Buoyed by the result, the state seat is now in their sights.

In the Riverina, the former branch president of the Wagga Wagga Liberals, Colin Taggart, has defected and joined the Conservatives to take on the Nationals in the once safe-Liberal seat.

One long-term political observer says the election will deliver a “Licorice Allsorts crossbench in the upper house with a mixed bag of minor parties”. The lower house decides the government but the upper house decides what the government can do.
