WANNON’S field of federal election candidates has settled at seven after Katter’s Australian Party failed to confirm a candidate by the deadline.
People had until noon on Thursday to nominate for the September 7 election, before the ballot was drawn on Friday.
Australian Christians’ Therese Corbett will appear ﬁrst on the ballot papers ahead of Labor’s Michael Barling, the Greens’ Tim Emanuelle, the Sex Party’s Chris Johnson, Family First’s Craig Haberﬁ eld and Liberal MP Dan Tehan.
Palmer United Party’s Bradley Ferguson will sit in the ﬁnal position in a eleventh hour bid for the seat.
Mr Tehan said with less than three weeks until the election, Wannon candidates had kept their campaigning positive.
“Here in Wannon I am pleased to report that everyone is running a positive campaign,” he said.
“To me the most important thing is the policies, and making sure that you campaign positively about those policies.”
Greens candidate Tim Emanuelle said drawing third position on the ballot paper would not impact his campaign.
“Most voters are pretty intelligent and can choose the candidates based on their policies,” he said.
“It is good to ﬁnally know who you are up against though.
“Now we will hopefully get the opportunity to ﬁnd out about the candidates who have been announced at the last minute.
