Michelle Landry Must Resign and Force a By-Election

Michelle Landry, LNP MP for Capricornia must resign. The Liberal National Coalition have now admitted they went to the election based on a blatant lie. If Malcolm Turnbull said he will bring back integrity to politics, he must insist that Ms. Landry resign today and force a by-election in Capricornia.

Senator Marise Payne has admitted that the Liberal National Coalition went to the 2016 election and they did not tell the people of Capricornia that they were planning forced acquisitions of farming land for the purpose of defence training expansion for the Singaporean Army.

Michelle Landry made multiple announcements about the Defence deal with the Singaporean Army.  However, Senator Payne, Ms. Landry and the Liberal National Party kept it a secret that this plan included compulsory acquisition of prime agricultural farming land before the election.  

They knowingly went to an election knowing that if this was revealed the seat would have had a very different outcome. To that end, the entire Government would have a different outcome, as voters all over the country would have protested against this deal.

Michelle Landry won her seat by 1111 votes.

Senator Payne has now admitted that they knew about the Land Grab prior to the election and kept this secret from the voters.

The people of Capricornia deserve the right to vote for their Federal Member based on all the facts about the plans their party has for their own electorate.

Mr. Turnbull and Mr. Joyce, please show some integrity and insist that Michelle Landry resign and force a by-election in Capricornia. The people of Capricornia deserve a fresh election based on all the facts.
