Clive Palmer focuses on Victoria ahead of election

GOLD Coast mining magnate Clive Palmer will wait until early next month to announce Palmer United Party candidates for the Victorian Election.

The Age reported that the PUP would announce its upper house candidates, including leader, on November 5, a day after the writs for the election are issued.

“We want to do the same for Victoria as what we are doing for Australia [in the Senate],” Mr Palmer said.


The millionaire was keeping a majority of his policy announcements close to his chest, ahead of the official launch next month.

But he did say his party would demand a review of the state of the Latrobe Valley.
