Pauline Hanson return on the cards

FORMER Ipswich politician and controversy magnet Pauline Hanson is in line for a shock return to politics.

Hanson, the former One Nation Party leader, has edged ahead of a Greens candidate in the Upper House election for New South Wales State Parliament.

The first votes counted in the Upper House were from Sydney and metropolitan areas and saw Ms Hanson’s stock dwindle, but the former fish and chip shop owner performed better in votes that were counted yesterday in rural NSW.

Ms Hanson, who now resides north of Newcastle, was last night ahead of third Greens candidate Jeremy Buckingham.

Labor’s sixth candidate, Andrew Ferguson last night slipped behind them both to 0.34.

However, the Greens were still a good chance of winning the final spot last night because they will benefit from any Labor preferences.
