Queensland election 2020 live results: Labor and Annastacia Palaszczuk projected to win as One Nation vote collapses | Australia news


But most importantly, can I acknowledge the people of Queensland. It has not been an easy year for many, many people.

For many Queenslanders, I know it has been an incredibly tough year. It has been tough not being able to see your family and friends in other states, or even around the world, as we’ve been in the midst of a global pandemic.

But here in Queensland we’ve all stood strong and united, and together we are on top of the pandemic, and if we continue to work together we will stay strong.

I grew up a few streets away from here and as a young child, education was important and family was important. There is nothing more important than family.

There is nothing more important than the dignity of work and people being able to get up every morning to be able to provide for their family. And this year has been tough because of Covid. Many, many people have lost their jobs through no fault of their own.

I know that during this election, there are many people out there in Queensland who have voted Labor for the very first time. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and I will return that respect every single day.
