Constance preferences Clive Palmer UAP and Pauline Hanson One nation over Labor and Greens

In what was considered a controversial alliance Andrew Constance, Liberal candidate for Gilmore told a Meet the Candidates forum in Tuross Head that his How to Vote card preference Clive Palmer's UAP second and Pauline Hanson's One Nation at fourth, placing Labor and Greens last. The forum was reminded that the last Federal election in Gilmore came down to the wire in the last round of counting with Fiona Phillips narrowly beating Warren Mundine and all due to preference flow of where voters placed their 2,3,4,5,6 and 7 on their voting forms. The preferences on How to Vote pamphlets handed out at polling booths are telling of how the candidate and their party are prepared to work with other parties, who they are prepared to sleep with and who they are least happy to work with. The declaration of placing the UAP second and Pauline Hanson above Labor and Greens came as a surprise to most of the 120 attendees to the forum.
