2018 State Election


Victoria needs an end to the recklessness, ruthlessness and manipulation of the Andrews government.  We need a government that will do the job properly, focus on genuine measures to tackle the problems we face and help Victorians get back control over their lives.

The 2018 election priorities of the Liberal Nationals included:

  • easing the congestion on our roads and public transport
  • protecting our residential streets and suburbs from over-development
  • stronger laws and sentences to keep our homes and streets safe
  • decentralising Victoria’s growth to take the pressure off Melbourne
  • restoring standards and respect in our schools
  • reducing the cost of living
  • filling the gaps in health and community service care.

Below are some of the practical and effective measures that were proposed by the Liberal Nationals during the 2018 state election.
