Queensland state election, 1998

Queensland state election, 1998. Following the 1998 state election, Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party emerged as a new political force in Queensland. As indicated by this map published by the Electoral Commission of Queensland, One Nation captured 11 seats after receiving nearly one quarter of Queensland’s primary vote. For the coalition parties, major upsets included the loss of the safe National seat of Barambah. The 1998 election result demonstrated that beyond the capital and urban core, One Nation’s ‘conservative’ agenda commanded widespread popular appeal.
