Election 2016: A surgeon, a former officer and a police trainer vying for Queensland seats

The ABC's Kristina Harazim reports (12.6.16) on some of the first-time candidates standing as minor party representatives in Queensland at the coming federal election.

'A surgeon, a former officer and a police trainer are among small-party candidates vying for Queensland seats in July's federal election.

'While the argument between the big parties gets most of the attention, minor-party candidates contesting a Senate seat face an even tougher time due to recent voting changes.

'Dr Des Soares, Kris Bullen and Karin Hanbidge hope to be more than just voices on the political fringe and are campaigning on shoestring budgets to offer voters an alternative.'
