The federal leader of the Palmer United Party and Member for Fairfax, Clive Palmer, confirmed the party position was that the Abbott government could not be allowed to break its promises made before an election.
“Our position is driven by one consistent principle – if the Government wishes to change its position on important matters we are there to ensure that no policy change can be implemented unless it has been taken previously to an election.”
Mr Palmer said the Palmer United Party senators have already help save the school kids bonus, low income superannuation and low income support.
“The Labor Party has failed to state that at the next election they will stand by these policies,” he said.
“Will Labor make them election issues and show that they are committed to them continuing as the Palmer United Party has done?
“Both Labor and the Liberal Party have refused to make such a commitment, which proves they are as bad as each other.”
