Queensland State election, 2006

Queensland State election, 2006. By the 2006 poll, Peter Beattie's Labor government was firmly entrenched across much of the electoral landscape. This election continued the gradual demise of One Nation, with the party holding its sole seat in far north Queensland but seeing its primary vote collapse to less than one percent. The Liberals and Nationals gained a handful of seats in their traditional heartlands of the Sunshine Coast and rural/provincial electorates respectively but otherwise made up little ground on Labor’s commanding primary vote; a handful of conservative Independents rounded out the remaining seats in the State’s southeast.
