Queensland state election, 1995

Queensland state election, 1995. Three years before Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party exploded onto the political scene, Queensland was divided between three major parties: the Australian Labor Party, the Liberal Party and the National Party. As indicated by this map of the 1995 State election results, Brisbane and metropolitan areas in the south east were dominated by the Labor and Liberal Parties. The larger rural and less populated electorates tended to be dominated by the Nationals. In the following 1998 elections, Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party captured nearly a quarter of the state’s primary vote and emerged as a new political force. The spectacular success of One Nation accentuated deep divisions in the political and social landscape. Details of polling at Queensland general election, Electoral Commission of Queensland, 1995
