Greens locked out of KAP preference deal

THE Greens have been locked out of a Katter's Australian Party preference deal, with the Queensland-based party to hand out preferences to both majors and Clive Palmer's fledgling group.

A statement from the KAP and Palmer's United Party released on Friday said the two new parties would give each other their lower house preferences on poll day.

But reports on the weekend further detailed that KAP had also made deals with both Labor and the Coalition.

In the Upper House in Queensland, the party had also done a deal with Labor in a bid to prevent a second Greens candidate getting a Senate spot.

However, Bob Katter's son Rob told the ABC the KAP had also done a preference deal with the LNP in the other states and territories.
