Pauline Hanson visits Gatton but no word on seat selection

NEWLY re-instated One Nation leader Pauline Hanson is remaining tight-lipped for now about which seat she will declare for at the next state election.

Ms Hanson who lives in the Scenic Rim has hinted strongly she would stand in a local seat for the election which must be held by June next year.

And after being seen twice in Gatton this week, rumours were rife that Ms Hanson would stand for the seat of Lockyer held by the LNP's Ian Rickuss.

Yesterday Ms Hanson attended the official opening of a local hair salon where she had her hair done earlier in the week.

Politics was off the agenda yesterday however she did tell the Gatton Star she would be ready to announce her plans in the next two weeks.

"I will be announcing which seat I am standing for around December 11," Ms Hanson said.

"I will be away next week then a meeting is being held with the State executive."

Ms Hanson said she knew a couple of candidates had indicated that they wished to stand for the seat of Lockyer.

"This will be determined by the State Executive," she said.

Ms Hanson was in Gatton a day after re-launching the party at Caboolture where she announced the party would again be known in Queensland as Pauline Hanson's One Nation.

Ms Hanson led the party to electoral success in the late 1990s and she was the federal member for Oxley from 1996 until losing her seat at the 1998 election.
