|Description||Crossbench MP Bob Katter says he will support the Turnbull Government in the event of a hung Parliament, but has reserved the right to change his mind if the Coalition engages in "union-bashing". |
The head of Katter's Australian Party emerged from talks with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull in Brisbane as the possibility remained of the federal election resulting in a hung Parliament.
Mr Katter has announced he will support supply and confidence to the Coalition if it fails to win enough seats to govern in its own right.
"We do not want to go back to the polls, that should not be imposed on the Australian people," he said.
Mr Katter highlighted water infrastructure projects in north Queensland as featuring heavily in Thursday's discussions, as well as farming, manufacturing and foreign investment.
He also issued a warning to the Coalition over his self-declared links with the trade union movement.
"If there is the slightest hint of union bashing, I can assure you all bets are off," Mr Katter said.
