The federal leader of the Palmer United Party, Clive Palmer, today announced that the Australian Motoring Enthusiast Party (AMEP) has signed a memorandum of understanding to work together and with intentions to vote with the Palmer United Party in the Senate.

Mr Palmer said the AMEP senator-elect Ricky Muir has agreed to work together with the three Palmer United Party Senators; Glenn Lazarus in Queensland, Jacqui Lambie in Tasmania and Dio Wang in Western Australia, in the interest of good government.

“The AMEP believes they would serve their constituents more effectively with intensions of voting together with the Palmer United Party to establish an even stronger voice within the senate,” he said.

“All parties should welcome this decision by the AMEP to vote in a team with the Palmer United Party.

“The Palmer United Party is happy to have played the leadership role in bringing together a united group within the Senate and we look forward to working with the government to ensure good government is achieved.

“The decision to work together means the Palmer United Party and the AMEP need to receive increased resources from the government in order to successfully review and consider proposed legislation.

“The volume of legislation is considerable and therefore to ensure efficient decision making additional resources will be required.”

Mr Palmer said the AMEP signed the memorandum with the Palmer United Party after recognising they were like minded and the AMEP could maximise their interest on motoring policies with an increased voting team.
