Queensland’s LNP blocks Andrew Laming from recontesting seat | 7.30

ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Queensland’s LNP blocks Andrew Laming from recontesting seat | 7.30” – below is their description.

After pledging to step down at the next election, embattled government backbencher Andrew Laming had a change of heart overnight but his bid to stand again for pre-selection was blocked by the Liberal-National Party.

The Queensland MP is on medical leave after claims of social media harassment and taking an inappropriate photo. As Michael Atkin reports, now he’s facing more pressure from within his own electorate.
