Beattie Calls February 7 Election For Queensland

The Labor Premier of Queensland, Peter Beattie, has announced a February 7 election for the Legislative Assembly.

The three-week campaign is likely to see Beattie’s government returned for a third term, although it is likely to lose some seats.

At the 2001 election, the ALP won a record 66 seats in the 89 seat unicameral parliament. The National Party has 12 seats and the Liberal Party has 3. There are 3 One Nation members and 5 independents.

The ALP would need to lose 22 seats to be in danger of losing government.
