ZONAL tax breaks of 20 per cent for people living more than 200 kilometres away from Melbourne would help the south-west in more ways than one, according to United Australia Party candidate Joshua Wallace.
The Camperdown resident said the tax break would boost the populations of regional areas, bringing professionals and new businesses to the south-west.
The bold policy would also help decentralise Australia, Mr Wallace said.
He said Clive Palmer also had a plan to help reduce electricity bills for Australians.
"We've got two parts to our plan to tackle power costs," Mr Wallace said.
"We want to build nuclear-fired power plants - we've got the largest uranium supply in the world."
Mr Wallace said some people were concerned about the safety issues of nuclear power, but he pointed out a nuclear reactor has been operating in Sydney for many years.
He said in addition to that Victorians were paying a hefty price for upgrades to electricity infrastructure and the government needed to address the high interest it was paying on loans to fund this.
Mr Wallace is also a big supporter of the party's policy to process minerals in Australia which are currently processed in Japan.
"We want to process the minerals here and create a lot of high paying jobs," Mr Wallace said.
The Fonterra employee and stocks and cryptographic assets trader also wants to see the introduction of an Australia Fund, which would provide money to rural and manufacturing industries in the event of an emergency.
He said this would have been extremely beneficial to farmers affected by the St Patrick's Day fires.
"We don't want families and farmers going broke," Mr Wallace said.
He said he would bring fresh ideas and fresh thinking to the Wannon electorate.
