Deb Frecklington wins Queensland LNP leadership

0

For the first time, a woman will lead Queensland’s LNP.

Former lawyer Deb Frecklington has been elected opposition leader, with former NRL referee Tim Mander to be her deputy.

In what’s believed to have been an easy win, Ms Frecklington saw off challenges from former leader John-Paul Langbroek and Mark Robinson.

Some in the party were demanding a fresh start after losing the state election a little over a fortnight ago.

Ms Frecklington, a 46-year-old mother-of-three, served as deputy to outgoing leader Tim Nicholls, who watched the LNP vote eroded by support for One Nation.

Premier Annastacia Palaszcuk has said she has seen off a number of LNP leaders.

One more doesn’t phase her.
