MISSING-in-action Palmer United Party candidate Bradley Ferguson has at last broken his campaign silence — sort of.
The party finally released a page of details about its Townsville-based candidate that revealed almost nothing about Mr Ferguson’s background and made no specific reference to the electorate.
The Standard is still keen to speak with the Wannon contender on his campaign to take the seat for the party run by mining magnate Clive Palmer.
Details confirmed the candidate works for Queensland Nickel as a restructure and efficiency officer and is “looking forward to the opportunity to represent the constituents of Wannon”.
It said Mr Ferguson had 23 years of work experience in “a range of industry sectors”.
A quote attributed to Mr Ferguson reads: “The Palmer United Party offers a genuine alternative for the people of Australia.
“We are committed to the Wannon community and to providing a strong alternative in the country’s current political arena.”
Calls to the candidate’s workplace ended in vain, while the party has not responded to requests to speak with Mr Ferguson.
Mr Ferguson isn’t the only Victorian candidate who works at Queensland Nickel, owned by party head Clive Palmer.
Melbourne Ports candidate Toby Stodart is also an employee, while the company’s manager Ian Ferguson is contesting the Queensland seat of Dawson.
